Dick Van Dyke Gives Update on His Condition After Car Crash: ‘I’m Sore All Over’

Dick Van Dyke is on the road to recovery, after recently crashing his car.

The Hollywood legend crashed his car into a gate in Malibu on 15th March, and has recently caught up with TMZ to give an update on how he’s been recovering.

At the time of the accident, it was reported that his nose and mouth were bleeding and that he might have suffered a concussion.

He explained to TMZ that “the airbag did not deploy, so I just did a face plant right in the steering wheel, and I have two stitches here. Other than that, it just made me a little numb.”

“I’m doing okay. I’m 97 — all my friends are dead,” he later joked.

As for how he’s doing now, all seems to be ok. But he did tel TMZ that he’s feeling ”sore all over.” Ouch.

Van Dyke was driving a silver 2018 Lexus LS 500 when the vehicle slid into the structure, according to authorities. The area has been experiencing record rains.

Paramedics treated Van Dyke at the scene, police said, though he was not taken to hospital.

This comes after he recently appeared on the hit TV show The Masked Singer.

When talking about his experience, he said: “I had never even seen the show when they asked me. So I checked it out and it looked like a lot of fun,” he told PEOPLE, after his exit from the Fox series. “I was positive they wouldn’t be able to guess who I was. And I was right!”

“They wanted me to do something current and I know nothing from rock,” Van Dyke admitted. “So we picked out one which typifies me. She’s the one that came up with it and I liked the song, too.”

“Every day my beautiful wife sings,” he said. “There’s a lot of duets going on around the house most of the day.”
