Anton Yelchin

The death of talented actor Anton Yelchin has officially been ruled accidental.

As you know, the 27-year-old was found Sunday pinned between his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the gate of his Studio City home after the car rolled backward down the steep driveway. So tragic.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County coroner's office now officially confirms the Star Trek star died of accidental "blunt traumatic asphyxia," People reports.

An LAPD spokesperson also confirms Yelchin's Jeep is the same model that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recalled in April for its gearshift design that makes it difficult to tell what gear the vehicle is in, explaining:

"We are looking into that. The investigation is still ongoing and the traffic detectives will look at all of those factors as they would in any traffic collision investigation. So, at this time we're not sure what caused it, but that's something investigators are looking at."

The investigation into the exact circumstances of Anton's death is ongoing, and it will be about 6-8 weeks until toxicology results are expected to be available.

What a devastating freak accident. We'll keep you posted as we learn more.

Listen to a previously-unheard Prince track here.

Prince may be gone but his music lives on.

On Saturday, Donatella Versace unveiled unreleased music by The Artist during her Milan Fashion Week show. The designer played an 11-minute mix during the Versace Men's Spring Summer 2017 runway, featuring a new song by the late legend.

Apparently, the fashionista and the icon were good friends, and he used to send her music quite a bit before his untimely passing.

Now, we aren't sure if the singer's estate gave Miz Versace permission to use the previously-unheard track.

However, if the songsmith gifted it to her, it's possible the 61-year-old didn't actually need approval to play the music after all.

As such, we were saddened but not surprised when we first found out the 21-year-old was employed at The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort at the time of his death.

Authorities Reveal Anton Yelchin Died Within A Minute Of His Tragic Accident

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

It's still hard for us to wrap our heads around the senselessness of Anton Yelchin's death.

According to info obtained by TMZ, the late actor died within a minute of the tragic accident at his home this past weekend.

Related: Anton's Accident May've Been Caused By A Design Flaw

For those who don't know, Anton passed away after his jeep pinned him between his brick mailbox and security gate. The car was found in neutral at the time of the tragedy, which explains why the vehicle rolled down the actor's steep driveway and subsequently crushed him.

Insiders close to the case reveal the 27-year-old suffered severe head and chest injuries following the accident. The investigators also believe the talented guy died within a minute of impact.

Sources went on to add that they don't believe drugs were a factor in this tragic situation. By all accounts, Mr. Yelchin was a drug-free and focused individual who didn't even dabble in marijuana.

As of now, authorities are still looking into the car's flaw that possibly caused this tragedy. It's still unclear if the actor's family will sue Fiat Chrysler for the now recalled e-shift that inadvertently tricks drivers into believing their vehicles are in park when in fact they're in neutral.

We'll keep you updated as we receive more info on this case.
