The car crashed into a gate after he slid on a wet road and lost control of the vehicle, People magazine confirmed. The publication said the area has been experiencing record rains.
Van Dyke was bleeding from the nose and mouth, TMZ reported. Paramedics treated him at the scene of the crash. Instead of going to a hospital, someone picked him up from the scene.
Police officers, according to TMZ, have requested that Van Dyke go for a driving retest due to his age.
This is the second crash in a decade for Van Dyke, who was driving his Jaguar near Calabasas in the Los Angeles suburbs when the car burst into flames on Aug.
It was not immediately clear what, if any, injuries the actor may have suffered. CBS News has reached out to a representative for Van Dyke and is awaiting response.
In 2021, Van Dyke showed off his workout on “CBS Mornings,” doing sit-ups for Anthony Mason at his Malibu home. “I’m 95. And a lot of my friends won’t do these,” he said. “All you old guys out there, listen to me, I’m telling you. You can keep going for — I’m still dancing and singing.”
That same year, he was celebrated at the Kennedy Center Honors, which he said was unexpected and he had “been trying to think the last couple of months how I came to get this.”
He also has five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy and a BAFTA. He also earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild.
Van Dyke landed “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” which ran on CBS from 1961 to 1966, after winning a Tony award for his role in the musical “Bye-Bye Birdie.”
“Mary Poppins” launched his movie career in 1964, and four years later he returned to the big screen as inventor Caractacus Potts in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”
In 2018, Van Dyke, who has also won four Emmys and one Grammy, made a dancing cameo in “Mary Poppins Returns.”
Last year, he starred in a music video released by Arlene & The Vantastix, his wife Arlene Silver’s band.
