Lawsuit settlement in death of Georgia film worker

The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) The family of a film worker who was killed in a train accident while shooting a movie near Savannah has reached a settlement with several defendants in a civil suit.

A statement from the Harris Penn Lowry law firm Wednesday said the settlement in a suit filed by the family of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones includes Unclaimed Freight Productions, Inc., Rayonier Fibers, LLC, and several others.

Jones was killed the first day of filming for a movie on musician Gregg Allman in February and attorneys say the terms of the settlement are confidential.

The statement says CSX railroad and Meddin Studios are still listed as defendants.

Jones' father, Richard Jones, says his family is continuing to advocate for safety on film sets through the Sarah Jones Film Foundation.


Some previous versions had spelling as Greg Allman.
