Production on Midnight Rider, the Gregg Allman biopic, has been suspended following the death of a crew member after a train accident on set, multiple outlets are reporting. Production company Film Allman, LLC confirmed the suspension in a statement: “In light of the tragic loss, we have decided to put the production of Midnight Rider on hold.”
Second camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones was struck and killed by a train as she helped stage a scene for the film on the tracks near Savannah, GA on February 20.

Nearly 38,000 people have signed the petition as of Thursday morning.
