Gregg Allman has released a statement on the accident that took the life of a crewmember on the set of Midnight Rider, a biopic based on his life, on Thursday afternoon. The statement reads:
I am so terribly saddened by the news of the tragedy that took the young life of Sarah Elizabeth Jones on the film set. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and colleagues during this time of mourning.
As previously reported, Jones was killed when she was struck by a train on the set of Midnight Rider. Seven other crewmembers were injured when they were struck by debris from a bed that had been placed on the tracks for a dream sequence scene. Officials have said that the crew did not have permission to be filming on the train tracks.
