Van Dyke was treated at the scene, Sgt. Wax of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told KTLA.

Police sources also told TMZ they submitted a request for the “Mary Poppins” star to retake his driving test.

While there’s no confirmation rain played a factor, it’s no secret that roadways have been slick due to the massive amounts of rainfall that have hit the region over the past two days.

The accident comes a decade after the “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” actor’s Jaguar caught fire on a Los Angeles freeway. Van Dyke was unhurt during the 2013 incident, his wife said at the time.
