Production on the Georgia set of the Gregg Allman biopic, Midnight Rider, has been shut down in the wake of an on-set accident that killed crew member Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old assistant camera operator. The accident also injured seven others.

The incident took place on February 20, while the crew was shooting a sequence on railroad tracks, and is currently the subject of a homicide investigation.

According to Variety, a spokesman for Rayonier, the paper company that owns the land surrounding the rail line at the site of the accident, confirmed that they had given permission for the film shoot to take place on its property. But even though a sign on the property states that access to the tracks is controlled by Rayonier guards, the paper company is not technically allowed to give permission for the crew to be on the tracks because they are owned by the railroad company CSX.
