New suit against Fiat Chrysler mentions Anton Yelchin's death

California  — A new lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler prominently mentions Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin, who was killed last weekend by an SUV under recall.

The suit was filed Thursday in California federal court on behalf of four people who own cars that are among the 1.1 million FCA vehicles recalled worldwide amid complaints from drivers. Some have said they can't tell if the transmission is in park after stopping.

The lawsuit says the shifter issue potentially caused Yelchin's death on Sunday, when his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled backward and pinned him against a brick mailbox. Police are still investigating, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the death may be related.

An FCA spokesperson says the company hasn't been served with the lawsuit and it would be inappropriate to comment.
