TMZ reports that director Randall Miller has been indicted in the death of a crew member during the filming of a biopic about Gregg Allman, Midnight Rider. Miller, along with his wife and the film's executive producer, have been indicted with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass for Sarah Elizabeth Jones' death earlier in February.
The Wayne County District Attorney in Georgia indicted the filmmakers. Jones was reportedly helping set up a shot on railroad tracks for the movie Midnight Rider when a speeding train smashed into the set, killing Jones. Six other people were injured.
Investigators claim that Miller was filming without a permit, hence the trespassing charge. According to the indictment, the film crew asked for permission to shoot on the tracks and were denied. Investigators say Miller was filming without a permit, hence the trespassing charge.
