Sarah Jones' family wants someone to pay.
Jones, 27, was working as a camera assistant on Midnight Rider, based on the memoir by Gregg Allman about the Allman Brothers Band, when she was struck and killed by a freight train while on location with the crew in southeast Georgia in February.
Her parents have filed a lawsuit against Allman, who is one of the film's executive producers, director Randall Miller and others, reportedly charging that those in charge "selected an unreasonably dangerous site for the filming location; failed to secure approval for filming from CSX; concealed their lack of approval from CSX from the cast and crew ...and otherwise failed to take measures to protect the safety of the Midnight Rider cast and crew."
In addition to Allman and Miller, the defendants named include CSX Transportation, which owns the railroad tracks where the crash occurred; Rayonier Performance Fibers, which owns the land surrounding the crash site; Miller's production company, Unclaimed Freight Productions; and several of the director's assistants.
