Sarah Jones and other crew members were shooting a dream sequence on a CSX rail bridge in Doctortown, Georgia when a train came hurtling down the tracks unexpectedly. Jones died and seven others were hurt, including the director.
Tragedy is a big part of the Allman Brothers saga. Gregg Allman's older brother Duane and bassist Berry Oakley died almost a year apart in motorcycle accidents in the early-'70s. Both were 24.
In the movie, Gregg Allman is played by Tyson Ritter and William Hurt. It focuses on Allman's battles with drugs and alcohol.
