Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicle that accidentally killed actor Anton Yelchin was under recall…


The SUV that killed Anton Yelchin was being recalled because the gear shifters have confused drivers, causing the vehicles to roll away unexpectedly. Yelchin was driving a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee when it rolled down his driveway early Sunday. According to Los Angeles police, Fiat Chrysler, which makes Jeeps, said that it is investigating the situation. Most 2015 model year Grand Cherokees were part of a global recall to the tune of 1.1 million vehicles.

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Jeep Grand Cherokee was urged to be recall amid complaints that drivers had trouble telling if they had put the automatic transmissions in park. If they were not in park and a driver left the vehicle, it could roll away.
