"Midnight Rider" Executive Producer Pleads Not Guilty in Crew Member Death

Danny ClinchMidnight Rider executive producer Jay Sedrish pleaded not guilty Monday to criminal trespassing and involuntary manslaughter in the death of 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones, Deadline.com reports.

Jones died on the first day of shooting of the Gregg Allman biopic in Georgia back in February. The crew was filming on live train tracks when an oncoming train barreled through, killing Jones and injuring several others.

Sedrish, director Randall Miller and Miller’s wife and fellow producer, Jody Savin, were all charged in the incident. Miller and Savin pleaded not guilty last month.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Labor cited the production for one willful and one serious safety violation. Film Allman LLC has until August 29 to pay a proposed $74,900 fine or contest the violations.
