Was Anton Yelchin’s Death Caused By A Jeep Defect?

Submitted by on June 23, 2016 – 11:34 amNo Comment

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that killed Anton Yelchin over the weekend was under a recall. The Star Trek actor died when his Jeep rolled backwards down his driveway, pinning him between the vehicle and a brick mailbox pillar.

Reportedly, the trucks were under recall because of a problem with the shifter. According to TMZ, the “problem is a driver might think the car is safely parked, when it’s actually in neutral.” Unfortunately, Anton’s SUV had not yet received the corrective repair, which has led to speculation that the defect caused his death.

As we previously reported, the 27-year-old’s body was discovered in the wee hours of Sunday morning by friends, who went looking for him after he failed to show up for a rehearsal.
