ATLANTA (AP) -- Representatives of a filmmaker's union say they'll work to ensure that accidents similar to one in south Georgia that killed an assistant camera operator never happen again.
Steven Poster is president of the International Cinematographers Guild. In a statement, he said the train crash that killed 27-year-old Sarah Elizabeth Jones on Thursday will shape the union's future discussions with producers.
Jones, of Atlanta, was hit by a train while she and crew members were filming a portion of "Midnight Rider," which is based on the life of musician Gregg Allman. Several other crew members were injured.
Poster says Jones was smart, talented and had an infectious personality. He says the union is cooperating with federal and local investigators, and will provide grief counseling for Jones' colleagues.
