As RadarOnline.com reported, Van Dyke's friends are concerned the end is near as he was recently spotted being pushed in a wheelchair by his wife. They got a scare when he was involved in a one-car collision earlier this year.

Insiders told us that his wife took his car keys away after that.

"He's aware of his age, but he's determined to maintain his independence," a tipster shared after the accident. Despite his age, he hasn't slowed down on the career front, which has also allegedly worried his family and friends.
