Anton Yelchin's parents blame Fiat Chrysler's faulty gear shift for the death of their son who suffered greatly as he was trapped against a gate ... this according to a new lawsuit.
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Irina and Viktor Yelchin say a defective e-shift gear selector led to the death of the "Star Trek" star after the actor got out of the vehicle, apparently believing he left his Jeep in park.
The suit claims Anton suffered after impact before ultimately succumbing to his injuries. According to the suit, "Yelchin was crushed and lingered alive for some time, trapped and suffocating until his death."
