This must be such a comfort to Anton Yelchin‘s family.

As you surely know, the Star Trek actor passed away over the weekend after his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled down his steep driveway in Studio City, CA and pinned him to his front gate. How tragic.

While it was already reported that the up-and-comer died from accidental blunt traumatic asphyxia, TMZ has since shared the late Like Crazy star suffered very little prior to his death.

How do they know this? Well, the media site obtained the Russia native’s death certificate which stated Anton’s death was “rapid” following the impact.

Honestly, we’re not shocked to learn this news as it was previously believed Yelchin died within a minute of his freak accident. Not to mention, the certificate claims there were no other major conditions that contributed to his death.

Although we’re happy to hear the Green Room performer wasn’t in much pain before he died, we are still heartbroken over the loss of such a promising talent. Our hearts go out to Anton’s family during this trying time.
