Eighty-seven-year-old Mary Poppins and Dick Van Dyke Show star Dick Van Dyke suffered an accident when his car caught fire along the 101 freeway near Los Angeles.
The spokesman for the California Highway Patrol, in an interview with NBC News, said people called 911 at around 2 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday, August 20 to report a white Jaguar they saw engulfed in flames on the right shoulder near the Parkway Calabasas exit in the west San Fernando Valley.
A man pulled Van Dyke from the vehicle. The actor was found slumped over his vehicle’s steering wheel.
Two hours after the fire was put out, it was still sitting on the freeway waiting for a tow truck to haul it away.
