SAVANNAH — The father of a young woman killed by a train on the set of a movie about Gregg Allman said Thursday the family is suing the singer and filmmakers as part of a "wake-up call" to make Hollywood safer. Sarah Jones' parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit Wednesday against the Allman Brothers Band singer and producers of the film "Midnight Rider."
