Anton Yelchin's Family Reaches Settlement with Car Company

Anton Yelchin‘s family has settled with Fiat Chrysler Autombiles, the company that manufactured the car that tragically killed him in a freak accident two years ago.

The actor died at the age of 27 when his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled backward down his driveway and pinned him between the gate of his Studio City home.

“FCA US is pleased that we’ve reached an amicable resolution in this matter. The details of the settlement are confidential. We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to the Yelchin family for their tragic loss,” a rep for the company said in a statement.

Yelchin‘s publicist says that the settlement will go to his foundation.

“The settlement will go to the Anton Yelchin Foundation and to the filming of a documentary on Anton’s life,” the rep told People. “The mission of the Foundation is to empower and support young people engaged in creative arts who face career challenges due to debilitating disease or disability.”
