This is so, so sad. Justin, you’ll be missed.

Former Boston Legal actor Justin Mentell, 27, died on the morning of Feb. 1 after he was thrown from his car when it crashed near Madison, Wisc., RadarOnline has confirmed.

An eyewitness tells the website that Justin’s jeep swerved off the road, went down an embankment and hit two trees. The gorgeous star wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and died on impact after being thrown from his car.

If you don’t know Justin by name, you might remember him from ABC’s legal drama, where he played lawyer Garrett Wells from 2005-2006. His latest flick was Disney’s G-Force, and he was also an aspiring musician.

Don’t make the same mistake Justin did: please wear your seatbelts.
