Family of 'Star Trek' actor sues Fiat Chrysler over roll-away death

LOS ANGELES - The parents of the late "Star Trek" movie actor Anton Yelchin sued Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV for negligence and product liability on Tuesday over the roll-away crash of a Jeep Grand Cherokee that killed their son.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, stems from the June accident in which Yelchin, 27, best known for his "Star Trek" movie role as Chekov, was crushed to death by his Grand Cherokee in the driveway of his home.
