the death of Anton Yelchin at the age of 27.
The actor played Chekhov on the JJ Abrams movies and in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond. He was killed when his car rolled down his driveway and pinned him against his mailbox and metal fence. The actor's movie credit include Terminator: Salvation, Fright Night, Alpha Dog and many more. I long suspected he would have been one of the first Star Trek alumni to win an Oscar. Sadly that day is no longer meant to be. He will be missed, condolences to his friends and family. Links to comments from Star Trek actors here and here.
