Dick Van Dyke Receives Outpouring Of Love From Fans After Crashing His Car In Malibu
Beloved actor and TV staple for seven decades Dick Van Dyke was involved in a collision in Malibu on Wednesday.
Thankfully, police confirmed to multipleoutlets the Mary Poppins actor suffered only "minor injuries."
The 97-year-old Tony, Grammy AND Emmy award winner was driving his silver 2018 Lexus LS 500 when the accident occurred. Van Dyke's vehicle slid into a gate in an area that had been experiencing record rainfall.
TMZ reported his nose and mouth were bleeding, and he might have sustained a concussion, but Van Dyke was not transported to the hospital after paramedics treated him. TMZ also reported someone took him home from the scene so he would not have to drive.
People on Twitter sent their well wishes as well as their relief that the legend wasn't seriously injured.
Though he's only a few years shy of being a centenarian, Van Dyke stays busy. Just last month he appeared on The Masked Singer on Fox. We doubt the accident will slow him down, but we are hoping he takes it easy long enough to make a full recovery.
