Anton Yelchin Died Within One Minute of Tragic Car Accident

Anton Yelchin died quickly after he was pinned against his security gate by his Jeep, sources close to the investigation told TMZ.

The 27-year-old actor was pinned against the gate and the Jeep reportedly crushed his lungs. It is believed that Anton passed away within one minute of the tragic accident.

The police are currently going through the security camera footage at Anton‘s home to see if the accident was captured on film.

The Jeep that Anton was driving was recalled recently as there was a problem with the e-shift where drivers would think they had put the car in park, though it was actually in neutral. You can watch a demonstration of the gear shifting process in the below video.

Anton Yelchin's Jeep Was Recalled for Gear Shifting Problem

Anton Yelchin was killed over the weekend after his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled down his driveway and pinned him against his gate. Now, it has been revealed that the car was recalled.

TMZ has confirmed that the 27-year-old actor never had the problem fixed.

It was determined that there was a gear shifting problem in the car as it may not “adequately warn the driver when driver’s door is opened and the vehicle is not in PARK, allowing them to exit the vehicle while the vehicle is still in gear.”

“Drivers thinking that their vehicle’s transmission is in the PARK position may be struck by the vehicle and injured if they attempt to get out of the vehicle while the engine is running and the parking brake is not engaged,” according to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Anton‘s cause of death was revealed to be “blunt traumatic asphyxia.”
