    'Star Trek' actor Anton Yelchin dies in car crash at age 27


    Published: June 19, 2016
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anton Yelchin, a charismatic and rising actor best known for playing Chekov in the new "Star Trek" films, has died at the age of 27. He was killed in a fatal traffic collision early Sunday morning, his publicist, Jennifer Allen confirmed.

    Yelchin started small with roles in indie films and various television shows, before breaking out in films like the crime thriller "Alpha Dog" and the teenage comedy "Charlie Bartlett." His biggest role to date has been in the rebooted "Star Trek" films — the third of which, "Star Trek Beyond" comes out in July.

    Yelchin, an only child, was born in Russia. His parents were professional figure skaters who moved the family to the United States when Yelchin was a baby. Yelchin's family requests privacy at this time.

    Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin dies aged 27 after being run over by his own car in tragic accident


    Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin has died at the age of 27.

    The actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home, his publicist confirmed. A source told TMZ that the body of the Russian-born actor was found by a friend on his driveway, after being hit by his own car in what appeared to be a tragic accident.

    The body was found at around 1am pinned between Yelchin's car and the mail box, with the vehicle's engine still running.

    The source told the website that the car was in neutral at the time. The driveway had a steep incline, the website reports.

    That kid was such a good actor. He did a lot of other indi movies. This sucks! His Chekov accent was spot on.

    He died in a traffic collision this morning at age 27.

    In other news, Ryan Lever is still alive and wants whatever money you can spare.
