Film company idiocy!

Found the details in the accident report on NTSB website. Accident report DCA14FR005. 20th February 2014, Actual location was Jessup, Georgia. After a month of trying to obtain permission to film, and being refused, the film company went ahead anyway! Scene was some sort of dream sequence with a couple in a metal framed bed placed across the tracks on the bridge! They had not been filming long when a train arrived. The bed was lifted aside, but fell back under the engine where it was destroyed, the shrapnel from its destruction killed one of the film crew and seriously injured another six. As I said, bosses F**k up, everyone in the pecking order thought the one above them had made the safety arrangements.
