A crew member for the upcoming Allman Brothers biopic “Midnight Rider” was killed in a train accident in Wayne County, Georgia on Thursday.
An unnamed woman working as a camera operator’s assistant on the film was struck and killed while filming a scene on a railroad trestle.
A law enforcement official confirms to TheWrap.com that a train unexpectedly travelled down the tracks while the crew was doing camera tests for the film.
Seven other crew members were also hurt in the accident, two with serious injuries, and transported to a local hospital.
The film, based on Gregg Allman’s New York Times bestselling biography “My Cross To Bear,” officially begins filming on Monday, and stars William Hurt and Tyson Ritter as the older and younger Gregg, Wyatt Russell as his brother Duane, and also features Eliza Dushku, Bradley Whitford, and Zoey Deutch.
