Dick Van Dyke ‘Fine’ After Car Explodes

Steve Granitz/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Dick Van Dyke is “fine” after his car began to smoke and then exploded on the highway, his rep said.

Van Dyke, 87, was driving his Jaguar to the dentist on a Los Angeles highway, just before the accident occurred.

“He was leaning over to get something out of the glove compartment when the car started smoking,” the rep said.

There happened to be a fire truck and ambulance in the vicinity and the personnel in those vehicles helped him out of the car, the actor’s rep said.

“The car exploded after,” his rep said.

Van Dyke’s wife Arlene tweeted a video of the wreck afterward and wrote, “Van Dyke’s melted car…He’s fine thank God!!”

“He had a long day and is resting,” his rep added.
