According to authorities, the Star Trek actor thought his car was parked when it was actually in neutral, as it rolled down his driveway and struck him. Although a recall notice went out on May 14, 2016 addressing the aforementioned problem, Yelchin had not gotten his car fixed yet.

On Tuesday, per TMZ, the thespian's family settled their lawsuit with auto company Fiat Chrysler, though the details are confidential.

Months after the tragedy, the dealership said the accident was caused by Anton's "misuse, misapplication or damage" of the vehicle.
