Terrifying moment crew rushed to save the life of actor from speeding train as he lay on tracks filming in incident which killed camerawoman

These white folks can be quite crazy sometimes. This film crew chose to shoot their movie in a train track with the lead actor lying on the tracks when they know quite well trains work the route on a daily basis, now that woman is gone 'cos of their stupidity!

The new video shows the terrifying moment a film crew rushed to save the life of Oscar-winner William Hurt.
The crew of the Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider can be seen dashing to get him off the tracks of a railroad bridge, along with their equipment, as he lay across the railway filming a scene in Georgia while a train rushes towards him and the crew at breakneck speed. 

The other actor in the scene, Wyatt Russell, can also be seen trying to scramble out of the train's path.
Hurt and Russell somehow made it to safety. But, several crew members suffered injuries. 
Camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones was tragically killed. She was just 27 years old.  
Two weeks ago, the film's director, Randall Miller, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing and will serve two years in a county jail and eight years probation while also paying a $20,000 fine.

Executive producer Jay Sedrish also pleaded guilty to the same charges and received 10 years probation. 
'We hope the sacrifice of our daughter's life will continue to change the film industry,' Jones' father, Richard Jones, told reporters outside the courthouse. 
'I believe it sends a message, frankly, that if you do not respect those you're in charge of, you may end up behind bars.'

  1. I got shocked to know that there is a railway track which is passing very near from active volcano in Japan & it is connecting Takamori to Tateno Station in Minamiaso.There are few world's most terrifying and gusty railway tracks, which gives you goose bumps .
