Anton Yelchin's house
Place of Interest in Studio City, California, United States
This is the house where actor Anton Yelchin died in a freak car accident.
It is situated at 3866 Berry Drive in Studio City, California.
Yelchin was best known for his role as Lieutenant Pavel Chekov in Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), and Star Trek Beyond (2016). He also portrayed Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation (2009) and Pat in Green Room (2015).
On June 18th, 2016, the actor parked his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee on the steep driveway outside of his home. He then walked down the driveway to check his gate.
Sadly, it seems as though Yelchin's SUV had a design flaw in its electronic gearshift that may have allowed the gear to switch back to "drive" or "reverse" without him realizing it.
Consequently, it rolled down the steep incline and trapped him between a brick pillar and the security gate at the entrance to his house.
Yelchin's body was discovered at roughly 1 a.m. the following morning after his friends in the punk band "The Hammerheads" became worried about the fact that he hadn't shown up for practice.
The medical examiner concluded that the 27-year-old had died from blunt traumatic asphyxia, which is caused by an intense compression of the chest cavity.
Two months later, his parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), which owns the Jeep brand.
Although the company had issued a recall for the model, the software update that fixed the design flaw didn't become available until the week of Yelchin's death.
In March of 2018, it was announced that both parties had reached a settlement out of court.

The Google Street View image above was captured in September of 2014, which was roughly two years before Anton Yelchin died in a freak accident.
The red circle highlights the brick pillar and gate that the actor was crushed against.
Notably, the driveway leading up to Berry Drive is pretty steep.
It is likely that the 27-year-old jumped out of his vehicle without realizing that it wasn't in "park" mode.
At that point, the SUV rolled down the driveway and trapped him up against the gate. The model in question weighs 4,875 lbs (2,211 kg), which is more than two tons.
The heavy pressure on his chest area would have disrupted his blood flow and prevented him from breathing properly.
