Star Trek actor, Anton Yelchin, dies at 27, in freak accident by his own car

Twenty seven year old Star Trek actor, Anton Yelchin has died in a freak car accident. The body of the Russian-born actor was found at around 1am on Sunday, on his driveway in San Fernadino, California. He had been hit by his own car, police sources told TMZ.

A friend found Yelchin's body pinned between his car and a brick mail
box, which was attached to a security gate.

According to police sources, the star was pinned against the gate by his 5,000 pound (2.5 ton) Jeep Grand Cherokee after he got out of the car but left the SUV in neutral.

Investigators believe the vehicle rolled backwards and into Yelchin. They have not established why he exited his car.

The car's engine was still running when Yelchin's body was found.

His friend had visited the home after growing concerned when the young actor failed to attend a planned 11pm rehearsal earlier in the evening.

Police are still investigating the sudden death, but sources told TMZ that there were not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.
