Mary Poppins - Dick Van Dyke Jokes About Fiery Car Drama

Mary Poppins star Dick Van Dyke is making light of his car fire drama, joking on Twitter.com that he's keen to sell his burned-out Jaguar.

The 87-year-old Tv and movie veteran was dragged out of his luxury vehicle by a fellow motorist, who spotted the actor struggling inside as it filled up with smoke by the side of the 101 freeway in California.

It was a lucky escape as the car burst into flames seconds later and by the time first responders arrived on the scene, the vehicle was completely engulfed by the fire.

Van Dyke was unharmed and refused medical attention as he waited for his wife to arrive and pick him up. She tweeted footage of her husband chatting with police and he has now taken to Twitter.com to poke fun at the fiery drama.

Posting a photo of the torched Jaguar, he quipped, "Used Jag for sale Real Cheap!!"
