OSHA cites Allman film company in Ga. train crash
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Federal workplace safety regulators have issued citations against a movie production company in a Georgia train crash that killed a camera assistant and injured six others while they were shooting a biographical film about singer Gregg Allman.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Thursday proposed $74,900 in fines against Film Allman LLC, a company incorporated in 2013 to make the movie "Midnight Rider."
The crew was shooting on a railroad bridge in rural Wayne County on Feb. 20 when a freight train plowed into the workers, killing 27-year-old Sarah Jones whose parents live in Columbia, South Carolina.
Film Allman LLC has the same address as Unclaimed Freight Productions, owned by director Randall Miller and his wife, Jody Savin. They have been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the crash.
