Fiat Chrysler settles lawsuit over US actor Anton Yelchin's death

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV reached a settlement in the lawsuit over the death of actor Anton Yelchin, Bloomberg News reported March 23.

Yelchin, known for his roles in recent "Star Trek" movies, died in 2016 after his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled down his driveway and pinned him against a brick pillar outside his home.

The lawyer of the actor's parents reportedly filed a notice of settlement in a California state court but terms were not disclosed. According to the newswire, the settlement will go to the Anton Yelchin Foundation and to the filming of a documentary about his life.

Fiat Chrysler recalled more than 1.1 million Grand Cherokees and large cars in April 2016, saying it knew of around 41 injuries that could be linked to the vehicles' gear shift, the report said.
