On Sunday, 27-year-old actor Anton Yelchin lost his life when his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled down the driveway and pinned him against his security gate. "[Anton's] death," writes Jeff Guo for the Washington Post, "raised the fear of anyone who's ever parked on a steep incline and worried if the brakes would hold."
The accident, while certainly unusual, is not altogether unprecedented. As Guo reports, rollaway cars kill nearly 100 and injure roughly 2,000 people every year.
But, when it comes to this particular Jeep, the story gets more complicated.
