Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin has died at the age of 27, in a freak accident.

Police sources told TMZ that the body of the Russian-born actor was found by a friend on his driveway in San Fernadino, California, after apparently being hit by his own car.

Yelchin, who played Mr Chekov in the Star Trek films, was discovered at around 1am on Sunday morning local time, pinned between his car and a brick mail box, which was attached to a security gate.
