According to police sources, the actor was pinned by his own 2.5 ton Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is believed that the actor got out of his car and the car rolled down the steep slope, crushing him on his metal gate. Foul play is not suspected, as the engine was still running and left in neutral. It is not yet known why Yelchin got out of his car.
