Star Trek Actor Anton Yelchin Dead After A Freak Car Accident

Anton-Yelchin1

(PCM) We are deeply saddened to learn that 27-year old actor Anton Yelchin has died as a result of a freak car accident which occurred at his Los Angeles, CA home. Yelchin is best known for his role as Chekov in the recent J.J. Abrams helmed “Star Trek” film franchise.

Authorities are calling Yelchin’s death a freak accident during which the young actor was pinned against a brick pillar and a security fence after his car slid backwards after he had stepped outside of the vehicle on his property around 1:10am. The incident caused Yelchin’s body immense trauma, which then led to his death.

The authorities went on the say that they believe Yelchin was on his way out to meet some friends for a rehearsal, when it appears that he stepped out of his vehicle for some reason and the freak incident occurred. When Yelchin failed to show up to the rehearsal his friends became worried and discovered his body behind the car when the arrived at his home.  Police did not say if the vehicle was running at the time his body was discovered.

Yelchin’s family was notified by the friends that discovered his body. Many of Yelchin’s “Star Trek” co-stars have begun to express their condolences including actor Chris Pine who tweeted “Devastated to hear about the brilliant Anton Yelchin. He was thoughtful, kind, and gifted. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Yelchin will be seen in next in “Star Trek Beyond” which will hit theaters on July 22, 2016. Our sincere condolences go out to Anton Yelchin’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.
