Third Defendant in ‘Midnight Rider’ Case Turns Himself In

Jay Sedrish, the third defendant in the “Midnight Rider” case, turned himself in to sheriff’s officials to be booked in Wayne County, Ga., on Thursday.

Director Randall Miller and producer Jody Savin turned themselves in to authorities on Sunday, when they were held for about 45 minutes before being released on cash bonds of $27,700 each. Sedrish turned himself in at 10:41 on Thursday morning and was released at 11:15 a.m. on Thursday after posting a bond in the same amount, a spokesman for the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said.

Camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed and six others were injured on the set of “Midnight Rider” on Feb. 22 while the production was shooting on train tracks and a trestle near Jesup, Ga., and a train unexpectedly approached.

Sedrish was the executive producer on “Midnight Rider,” and along with Miller and Savin was indicted on charges on involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing. Sedrish’s attorney, John Ossick, could not immediately be reached for comment. But Ed Garland, attorney for Miller and Savin, said earlier this week that his clients “are innocent of any criminal conduct.”
