So sad!

Disaster struck on the set of the the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider in Wayne County, Georgia, as a freight train unexpectedly arrived on the railroad bridge where the film's crew had been shooting a dream sequence.

Despite the train's warning whistle, which only gave the crew less than a minute to act, the locomotive resulted in seven injuries, and the tragic death of the film's 27-year old second camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones.

Director Randall Miller tried removing the mattress and tripped before the still photographer pulled him off the tracks, thus saving his life.

The railroad track's operator, CSX, issued this statement in response:
