Injuries revealed after legendary ‘Mary Poppins’ actor crashes car
Dick Van Dyke suffered bumps, bruises and a possible concussion during a minor car crash in Los Angeles.
The 97-year-old acting legend was driving when he crashed his 2018 Lexus LS 500 into a gate last week. According to TMZ, the “Mary Poppins” star told police that the car slid and he lost control before plowing into the gate. The rainy weather battering Southern California of late has made the roads wet and slippery.
In the aftermath of the accident, Dick was bleeding from the nose and mouth. He was treated at the scene by paramedics but did not go to the hospital. In addition, Dick did not drive home, but was rather picked up by someone else.
In its March 22 report, TMZ was quick to point out that drugs and alcohol were not involved. Police, however, have submitted paperwork to the DMV requesting that Dick take a new driving test. The request is not uncommon for someone of the actor’s age.
The four-time Emmy winner broke into the film industry in 1957 and he’s continued to find work. Earlier this year, he appeared as the gnome on the “Masked Singer.”
