Anton Yelchin's Death: Jeep Says It's 'Premature' to Blame Car
Anton Yelchin died after his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled down his driveway and pinned him against the gate, but the car company says its “premature” to blame them for the death.
Fiat Chrysler Automotive, the parent company of Jeep, has released a statement on the death of the 27-year-old Star Trek actor.
“FCA US extends its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Yelchin,” the company told TheWrap. “The company will be conducting a thorough investigation of this tragic incident. It is premature to speculate on its cause at this time.”
It was revealed that Anton‘s Jeep model was recalled last year for problems with the transmission and he never got the car fixed.
