Hollywood actor, Anton Yelchin most popular for his role in Star Trek as Pavel Chekov died on Sunday morning after getting crushed by his vehicle.
Anton was found pinned between his Jeep Grand Cherokee and a brick mailbox pillar. He was discovered by friends who got concerned after he didn’t show up for a rehearsal hours later. His body was pinned with such force, it bent a metal security gate leading to his home.
Law enforcement say the engine was running when the body was discovered, and the car was in neutral. The driveway was on a fairly steep incline and it is unclear why he got out of the car. He was pronounced dead at the scene but so far the coroner has not determined if he died instantly upon impact.
The 27-year-old had a security camera trained at the gate which may have captured the accident.
