LOS ANGELES (AP) — He had a promising career. But Anton Yelchin’s career — and life — has been cut short by a tragic accident.

Police in Los Angeles say Yelchin was killed by his own car as it rolled down his driveway early Sunday. The car pinned the actor against a brick mailbox pillar and security fence at his home. Yelchin got out of the vehicle momentarily, but police didn’t say why he was behind the car when it began rolling.

Yelchin was on his way to meet friends for a rehearsal. When he didn’t show up, his friends went to his home and found him dead.

Anton Yelchin was 27.
