Legendary TV personality Dick Van Dyke is said to have suffered injuries when he lost control and crashed his Lexus in Malibu.
On Wednesday morning, according to TMZ, the 97-year-old actor’s car skidded in the rain before slamming into a gate.
His mouth and nose were bloody, and he might have suffered a concussion as a result of the incident.
The Hollywood veteran was driving his Lexus LS 500 when police arrived, according to TMZ.
He received care from paramedics on the scene.
It’s believed that Van Dyke was picked up by a friend who drove him home rather than being taken to the hospital.
According to reports, police have sent paperwork to the DMV asking for the “Mary Poppins” actor to retake his driving test.
Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the collision, according to the police, the outlet reported.
The actor’s agents have been contacted by The Post for comment.
The incident occurs almost ten years to the day after Van Dyke was saved from his burning Jaguar in Los Angeles following another automobile accident.
The actor was dragged from the car after apparently failing to notice that it was on fire on the highway.
“It just started making a noise, and I thought I had a flat at first, then it started to smoke, then it burned to a crisp,” he told TMZ at the time.
Van Dyke said he escaped uninjured and “there was a fireman, a nurse and a cop just happened to be passing by. Somebody’s looking after me.”
Its hard to watch such a revered actor change over the years. We remember them when they are young and energetic, unstoppable, and stars in the own world. Then we see them decades later and expect them to be the same and they aren’t. I picture DVD as being 35 to 40, not at all 97! Even MTM in my mind does not age either. I look in my mirror each morning and now see a grumpy old man, like in the cartoons, looking back at me and it makes me laugh. Life and time stands still for nobody.
