AN­TON’S TRAGIC DEATH CAUGHT ON TAPE

In Touch (USA) - - News Flash -

Star Trek star An­ton Yelchin’s un­ex­pected death out­side his LA home on June 19 sent shock waves through Hol­ly­wood. And in a hor­rific twist, his death was likely caught on tape. Po­lice weren’t im­me­di­ately able to de­ter­mine what caused the freak ac­ci­dent that killed the ac­tor, 27, who played Pavel Chekov in the pop­u­lar movie fran­chise. The star’s 5,000-pound Jeep Grand Chero­kee rolled back­ward down his steep drive­way, fa­tally pin­ning him against his gate. Cops may get an­swers from a se­cu­rity camera that was trained on the drive­way en­trance. One pos­si­bil­ity? In April, Fiat Chrysler au­to­mo­tives is­sued a re­call on An­ton’s Jeep, stat­ing that “driv­ers may in­ad­ver­tently fail to achieve the park po­si­tion be­fore ex­it­ing.” The tragedy has hit his loved ones hard. “An­ton was one of my best friends. Can’t say any­thing to con­vey what this feels like,” tweeted 2 Broke Girls star Kat Den­nings, 30, while Star Trek co-star Zachary Quinto, 39, summed it up: “[An­ton was] so tal­ented, wise be­yond his years and gone be­fore his time.”

An­ton’s body was found by pals out­side his LA home in the early hours of June 19, pinned be­tween his car and his se­cu­rity gate.
