27 year old Anton Yelchin, who played Chekov in the new Star Trek film was killed at his home on Sunday. His death was caused by his Jeep Grand Cherokee, which rolled backwards and pinned him between the car and the gate to his home. Our thoughts are with his loved ones and fans.

After investigating the star’s death, it was found that the vehicle was left in neutral rather than park. Jeep Grand Cherokees were recalled across the United States in April due to an issue with the gear shift that causes drivers to believe their car is in park, though it is not. The design flaw has caused hundreds of reported accidents and injuries across the country.

When purchasing a vehicle, buyers expect their new car to be safe. Unfortunately, vehicle recalls occur with astonishing frequency and are extremely dangerous.
