Just another day for ol' Dick.



Comic actor Dick Van Dyke is in the pink after being pulled from a flaming vehicle on the highway in Calabasas, Calif., on Monday, the L.A. Times reports. He's already joking that you can buy the car if you want.

The California Highway Patrol arrived at the scene on the 101 Freeway to find a Jaguar in flames, with the driver still inside. The Times says the police report notes two off-duty nurses helped the driver, whose name was not given, and that he may have been unaware the car was even on fire. Yep, that sounds like something an 87-year-old actor might do.

Both Van Dyke and his wife Arlene tweeted about the incident Monday, with Dick touting "Used Jag for sale REAL CHEAP!!" with a photo of the vehicle.

His wife posted a Vine video of the scene, tweeting, "Van Dyke's melted car @iammrvandy He's fine thank God!!"

Feel free to tweet to Dick yourself, but don't expect him to be aware of that, either.
