Dick Van Dyke was driving down a freeway in Los Angeles when his Jaguar started to make a strange noise as if a tire was going flat. It was something more serious since the vehicle burst into flames.
On August 19, MSN Wonderwall reported that the 87-year old actor was hunched over in the driver’s seat. The actor was overwhelmed by flames and the smoke knocking him semi-unconscious.
If it wasn’t for the good gracious efforts on the part of a Good Samaritan named James Pennington rushing over to help the man he witnessed slumped over the steering wheel and pulling him out to safety who knows what might have happened.
Dick Van Dyke is lucky to be alive after this ordeal. His Jaguar met a fate that is unrecoverable. The vehicle burnt to a crisp. Dick Van Dyke is lucky that James Pennington happened to be passing along and will be forever grateful for his quick thinking and actions to help someone who was in trouble.
We are all happy to hear that Dick Van Dyke wasn’t injured at all during the time he spent in the Jaguar as it started to burn.
