Three bars bent out of shape – the last impression left by Hollywood actor Anton Yelchin (27), after his own car rolled back and trapped him between the wrought iron gate and a solid brick pillar at the entrance to his Studio City home.
The Los Angeles coroner confirmed ‘blunt trauma asphyxia’ as the cause of Yelchin’s death.
The Russian-born actor was best known for playing navigation officer Chekov in Star Trek, the 1960s TV series recently re-booted as a feature film franchise.
The vehicle found next to Yelchin’s body was a 2015 Grand Cherokee Jeep. Themodel had already been recalled by manufacturers Chrysler because of gear stick problems and ‘rollaway risk’.
The electronic gear-change lets drivers think they’ve gone to ‘park’ when really they are still in ‘neutral’.
In a kitsch coincidence Yelchin will appear from beyond the grave in a Star Trek movie entitled Star Trek Beyond. Finished a few weeks before his freak fatal accident, the film will boldly go on general release in July.

I ask you, who in their right mind would stab and shoot and lastly shout ‘Britain First’? Reverse order, perverse logic; like as not he wasn’t in his right mind.
