An attorney who represents Yelchin’s parents announced Monday that they are planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit on Tuesday against Fiat Chrysler, who made the Jeep that killed their son.

The actor’s vehicle was subject to a recall because the gear shifters have confused drivers, causing the vehicles to roll away unexpectedly. The SUV was part of a global recall of 1.1 million vehicles by automaker Fiat Chrysler in April.
