    Fiat Chrysler, maker of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, said in a statement Thursday that it's pleased an amicable resolution has been reached, and continues to extend its sympathy to the Yelchins.

    Anton Yelchin was killed at age 27 when his 2015 Cherokee rolled backward down a driveway of his Los Angeles home, pinning him between a mailbox and a security fence.
