He was found dead by friends in his driveway after they became worried about him when he didn’t show up for a rehearsal. It appears he died after getting pinned against a brick mailbox by his own vehicle. His driveway is on a steep incline, and the car may have rolled down a hill, fatally wounding him. Cops do not suspect foul play.
Anton’s rep confirmed his death to HollywoodLife.com: “Actor Anton Yelchin was killed in a fatal traffic collision early this morning. His family requests you respect their privacy at this time.”
This is absolute tragedy. Anton was such a gifted actor. He lit up the screen in every single role, especially in Like Crazy, Star Trek and more. The world is a much darker place without him in it. HollywoodLife.com will keep you updated on all things Anton as news develops.
