Dick Van Dyke Almost Becomes a Flaming Van Dyke


The legendary funny man saw no humor in his Jaguar suddenly erupting into flames.

Comedic TV and Movie legend Dick Van Dyke had a rather scary moment recently as his Jaguar XJ had suddenly caught fire on a Los Angeles highway. The 87 year old funny man was pulled from his car and it was not determined if he was conscious or not. The car was charred to the bone and Mr. Van Dyke was able to get out alive thanks to his fellow motorists. Staying true to his good-natured comedic form, Van Dyke later sent out a Tweet saying "Used Jag for sale, REAL CHEAP!!". We're pretty sure that this buyer would be interested.
