Anton Yelchin, a rising actor best known for playing Chekov in the new Star Trek films, has died at the age of 27. He was killed in an accident at his Los Angeles home early on Sunday morning, his publicist Jennifer Allen said.
The actor was standing behind his car, which was parked in his driveway when the vehicle rolled backwards, pinning him against a security fence. He had been on his way to meet friends for a rehearsal and when he did not show up, they went to his house and found his body, the Independent reports.
