Anton Yelchin’s Death Officially Ruled An Accident

Anton Yelchin's Death Officially Ruled An Accident

Anton Yelchin’s death has officially been ruled an accident by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office on Tuesday.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter explained that the 27-year-old Russian-born actor died of “blunt traumatic asphyxia” after being pinned between a brick mailbox pillar and a security fence after his car, a 2015 Jeep Cherokee, rolled down his driveway at his home in Studio City.

A representative for the coroner told TheWrap, “Due to his injuries he most likely died within a minute or so.”

The Fiat Chrysler-made 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is part of a massive recall that effects nearly 1.1 million vehicles, due to a confusing electronic shift lever.

Yelchin will posthumously appear in this summer’s Star Trek Beyond, due in theaters on July 22.

    This is the first accidental death in the Star Trek Family. Old age is always the cause.
