Embattled Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider is facing another lawsuit.
Makeup artist Antonyia Verna is suing the film's production team, Allman, and the freight company, according to the Hollywood Reporter, claims that, following a February 20th train incident that resulted in the death of camera assistant Sarah Jones, she sustained "serious physical injuries, medical and other necessary expenses, post-traumatic stress, mental anguish, lost income, and mental and physical pain and suffering."
Verna also claims "once it became apparent that a train was heading toward their shooting location, crew members had less than 60 seconds to evacuate the scene. Six people, including Verna and Gilliard, were injured when the train, which was traveling at over 60 miles per hour, passed through the set.
The suit also alleges that the production failed to take "minimum safety precaution," from not having a lookout to not holding a pre-shoot safety meeting to not attaining an on-set medic, while also filming in an "unreasonably dangerous site" without getting proper permission and clearance.
