‘Midnight Rider’ Director Pleads Guilty in Case of Fatal Train Crash
One of the saddest and most tragic incidents in recent film history occurred on a bridge in Georgia on February 20, 2014. The cast and crew of Midnight Rider, a biopic based on the life of musician Gregg Allman, had assembled for a day of camera tests. But while they were testing, director Randall Miller and his team decided to actually shoot a sequence for the film on a bridge over the Altamaha River, and as they prepared to film, a train came through, killing camera assistant Sarah Jones.
