Dick Van Dyke, who is 97 years old, is reported to have been injured in a car accident in Malibu, CA. Police responded to a call of a single-car accident where officials found Dick behind the wheel of his vehicle, a 2018 Lexus LS 500, that he had crashed into a gate.
Sources claim that Dick told the officials his car slid and he lost control before slamming into the gate. Reports say he was bleeding from the nose and mouth and might have suffered a concussion, but otherwise, has not suffered any major injuries.

Dick was apparently treated right at the scene as he refused to visit a hospital for treatment. Additional sources add that there were no drugs or alcohol involved, although officials have sent in paperwork to the DMV requesting a driving re-test for the actor, citing his age as one of the reasons.

The Sheriff’s department was able to clarify the extent of Dick’s injuries. “Van Dyke sustained moderate injuries and was subsequently treated on the scene by members of the Los Angeles County Fire Department,” they said. No other passengers were in the vehicle with Dick at the time.
He’s also no stranger to car accidents. Back in 2013, Dick was involved in another accident when his white Jaguar began smoking and then caught fire while he was driving on the 101 freeway near Los Angeles. A bystander then pulled Dick from the car when he noticed he was slumped over his steering wheel.
