[Note: The following article will have disturbing details that may be unsuitable for younger and sensitive readers.]

It is with a heavy heart that we report on the tragic death of Anton Yelchin.

His sudden death resulted from an automobile accident in which the actor was pinned between his car and a brick mailbox on his property.

Police are still gathering details of the accident, though no foul is suspected.

Yelchin’s acting career began in 1994 and took off after his role in the movie Alpha Dog. Starring in three Star Trek films, Yelchin’s career included an eclectic selection. Among his credits include HuffTerminator: Salvation, this year’s incredible Green Room, and the underrated Fright Night remake.

The son of political refuges of the former USSR, Yelchin is a shining example of the American dream and one rising by their abilities and talent. His death comes as a terrible shock to his fans, his family, and his friends.

Anton Yelchin will be dearly forgotten and his family and friends will be in our thoughts and prayers.

We here at Monkeys Fighting Robot recommend that if you want to remember this young actor, check out his films and television work. His talent and energy demonstrated a zeal for life that we should all emulate.
