Entertainment – ‘Star Trek’ actor Anton Yelchin dies in car accident


Twenty-seven-year-old actor Anton Yelchin, most known for his role as Chekov in the most recent installments of the “Star Trek” movies, died early Sunday morning in a freak car accident. According to Jennifer Houser with the Los Angeles Police Department, when Yelchin stepped out of his car at his home at around 1:10 a.m., the car slid backwards and pinned him against a brick pillar and security fence. The trauma caused by the accident led to his death. “The victim was on his way to meet his friends for a rehearsal and when he didn’t show up, his friends went to his house where they found him deceased by his car,” Houser said. “It appears that he momentarily left his car, leaving it in the driveway. He was behind the vehicle when it rolled backward and pinned him to the brick pillar causing the trauma that led to his death.”
