Mentell, who played brash and goofy lawyer Garrett Wells for the award-winning legal drama-comedy series, was killed in an SUV crash in Wisconsin when his SUV went down an embankment off Highway 39 near Blanchardville before slamming against two trees.

According to the Iowa County Sheriff’s Department the actor died on the scene as he was thrown from the vehicle because he was not wearing a seatbelt.

Currently, there are no indications that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash – police speculate that the actor may have fallen asleep at the wheel while driving.
