Trek actor's death car case settled.

THE parents of Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin have settled their legal case against the makers of his car, which rolled downhill and killed him in 2016.

He died when his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee pinned him against a mailbox at his LA house in June 2016.

His parents filed a wrongful death case against Fiat Chrysler in August that year, saying the gear changer was defective.

In April 2016, the firm recalled 1.1million vehicles across the world because of concerns that they could roll away after drivers exit.

The money will go to the Anton Yelchin Foundation. The amount hasn't been disclosed.

Fiat Chrysler said they were pleased to reach an amicable resolution.

The actor was born in Russia and played Chekov in the rebooted Star Trek films in 2009 and 2013.
