'Star Trek' Actor Anton Yelchin Killed by Own Car at Age 27


Anton Yelchin, a rising actor best known for playing Chekov in the new "Star Trek" films, was killed in a car accident early Sunday, police and his publicist said.

Yelchin, 27, was struck by his own car as it rolled backward down his driveway in Studio City, according to Los Angeles police Officer Jenny Hosier. The car pinned Yelchin against a brick mailbox pillar and a security fence.

He had gotten out of the vehicle momentarily, but police did not say why he was behind it when it started rolling.

He was on his way to meet friends for a rehearsal, Hosier said. When he didn't show up, the group came to his home and found him dead.

So, sad. And so weird.

I just got a text from my grandson. He knows I'm a Trek fan.

Chekov has always been one of my favorite characters.

I liked him as Chekov! And yeah, what a strange way to go.

Best wishes on your new voyages!

(Captin Kirk's eulogy for Spok always makes me cry. Best one of the lot so far? I will go to Darkness just to see him one last time)

Surpose being run over by your own car merits a darwin award.

So he'd never heard of an emergency brake? He stopped the car, left it in neutral, got out and moved behind it on an incline, and it rolled into him, thus earning himself a

Darwin Award.

That's horrible. Not only do I know him form Star Trek, but he played Odd in "Odd Thomas", the movie based on one of my favorite books.

So young. May he rest in peace.

I had just been sent the 2nd book in the series as a gift. I watched it online with an internet friend who was a fan of the series, not long ago. We have 'movie nights' and watch while talking on skype.

Sad sad news!

and for the handbreaks: i guess he grew up/learned driving on flat lands, never really used the handbreaks.

Myself started to learn in a region with steep streets, the function of the handbreak was the first thing i got tought, even before i could touch the keys to start the car.

Trailer for Odd Thomas, since is the lesser known movie.



The ending is absolutely heartbreaking.

There is no God. If there was he would have saved Anton Yelchin and taken Brian Harvey from E17.

I've read the books and seen the movie, he played the character well. He will be missed.

I'm not quite through all the books. But I have them all now. It is a terrible loss.

Two words.

Tragic...... Bizarre.

Sad but stuff like this happens all the time. I once knew a great old retired Veterinarian who, one winter, was accidentally killed by his wife of 40 + years after a bad snow storm, she backed the car over him in the driveway.
