'Star Trek' Star Anton Yelchin Dead After Freak Accident

This is terrible news – actor Anton Yelchin has died.

According to TMZ, the 27-year-old Star Trek star was killed early on Sunday morning (June 19) after getting pinned by his own car.

His friend reportedly got worried when he didn’t show up to a meeting, so he went to his house in San Fernando Valley and found him “pinned between his car and a brick mailbox, which was attached to a security gate.”

Cops say that the engine was still running and the car was in neutral. No other details are known at this time, but they don’t suspect foul play.

Our thoughts are with Anton‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
