Anton Yelchin dies crushed by it's new Jeep Grand Chrokee! Jeep Parking problems

Yelchin’s car was a Jeep Grand Cherokee, leading us to wonder whether it was among the 1.1 million cars recalled in April due to a confusing shifter that owners often inadvertently left in neutral instead of park.



According to the automaker’s recall notice, “Some drivers... exited their vehicles without first selecting ‘PARK,’” ultimately causing the cars to roll away uncontrollably.




"It appears the “Star Trek” star had just left his home and cleared the security gate ... but for some reason it appears he got out and left the vehicle in neutral...Yelchin’s 5,000 pound Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled backwards and pinned him against the gate with such force, it bent the metal."
