Death of Columbia Native in GA Film Shoot 'Senseless'

ATLANTA (AP) - The parents of a Georgia camera assistant killed by a freight train while filming a movie say they're grieving, angry and want someone held accountable for their daughter's death.

It's been less than two months since 27-year-old Sarah Jones died after being struck by a train on tracks spanning the Altamaha River southwest of Savannah. She was part of a crew shooting a movie about singer Gregg Allman.

Her parents, Richard and Elizabeth Jones, of Columbia, S.C., told The Associated Press on Wednesday their daughter's death was "senseless." Richard Jones says he believes the film's producers "did so many wrong things on so many levels, it's just unbelievable."

Donnie Dixon, an attorney for the film's director, Randall Miller, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
