Veteran actor Dick Van Dyke was pulled out of the blazing flames of car fire when his Jaguar suddenly burst into flames as he drove along a L.A. freeway on Monday afternoon.
The 83-year old actor was rescued by a good Samaritan named Jason Pennington, who spotted Van Dyke struggling to get out of the flaming car and rushed over to open the driver’s door and free him.
Happily, Dyke did not need treatment … and his wife came over moments later to take him home.
And as for the car, Dyke says ‘you can have it’ … now that it is totaled.
But don’t even think about having the car for yourself because moments after Van Dyke was rescued from the burning car, what remained of the car exploded. (Watch the video)
