Movie production company sued after worker killed by train


A movie production company is now facing nearly $75,000 in fines for a south Georgia train crash that killed an Atlanta woman.
Camera assistant Sarah Jones, 27, died in February and eight of her co-workers were injured while trying to escape an oncoming freight train. The group was working atop a train trestle while filming the movie Midnight Rider.
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration said the production company Film Allman failed to protect its workers by working on a live track without permission and with no safety plan.
The company has 15 days to contest the fines.
