‘Midnight Rider’ Filmmakers Turn Themselves in to Authorities

Director Randall Miller and his wife, Jody Savin, facing involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass charges in the Feb. 22 train accident on the set of “Midnight Rider,” turned themselves in to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, authorities said.

Producer Jay Sedrish, who is also facing charges, is expected to surrender to authorities later this week. According to local station WSAV-TV, Miller and Savin were booked on Sunday and released after each posted a $27,000 bond. They will face arraignment at a later date, although they may not have to appear to enter their pleas, authorities said.

Miller, Savin and Sedrish were charged after a grand jury in Wayne County, Ga., returned indictments against them on July 2. Sarah Jones, a second camera assistant, was killed after the crew of the movie scrambled to get out of the way of an oncoming train. Six others were injured.
