The car is suspected to have rolled down the slanted driveway of his Los Angeles home and pinned Yelchin, 27 against a brick mailbox pillar and a security fence. According to ABC news, Officer Jenny Hosier said that the had gotten out of the vehicle momentarily, but police did not say why he was behind it when it started rolling.

Yelchin was on his way to meet friends for a rehearsal, Hosier said. When he didn't show up, the group came to his home and found him dead. His death is a pain loss to hollywood and would be felt throughout the industry.
