Actor Dick Van Dyke‘s car burst into flames while driving on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles on Monday, and radio detection and rangingOnline.com has obtained the shocking photos and video.
The 87-year-old’s Jaguar caught fire while driving and he managed to pull over just before the car was fully engulfed and avoided injury — and that’s when his wife, Arlene Van Dyke whipped out her cell phone to capture the charred wreckage.
