Dick Van Dyke 'Fine' After Car Catches Fire On Highway

Dick Van Dyke is "fine" after his car began to smoke and then exploded on the highway.

The 87-year-old was driving his Jaguar to the dentist on a Los Angeles highway on Monday when the television actor noticed something unusual.

"He was leaning over to get something out of the glove compartment when the car started smoking," says his publicist. "The car exploded after."

Van Dyke was helped out of the car while it was releasing smoke by a passerby and police after witnesses reported a burning vehicle on the 101's right shoulder.

Van Dyke's wife, Arlene, shared a photo of the car writing "Van Dyke's melted car... He's fine thank God!!"
