Dick Van Dyke, a legendary TV star, is said to have been injured after crashing his Lexus in Malibu after losing control of the wheel.
The 97-year-old actor’s car skidded in wet weather conditions before smashing into a gate on Wednesday morning, TMZ reports.
He suffered a bloody nose and mouth, as well as a possible concussion, as a result of the ordeal.
According to TMZ, when police arrived on the scene, they discovered the Hollywood veteran behind the wheel of his Lexus LS 500.
Paramedics treated him on the spot.
According to reports, Van Dyke was not taken to the hospital but rather picked up by a friend who drove him home.
Cops reportedly submitted paperwork to the DMV requesting that the “Mary Poppins” star retake his driving test.
Officers stated that drugs and alcohol were not involved in the crash, according to the outlet.
The Post has reached out to the actor’s representatives for comment.
Van Dyke’s ordeal comes nearly ten years after he was rescued from a burning Jaguar in Los Angeles.
The actor was pulled from the vehicle, apparently unaware 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, and 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.”
