SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Railroad company CSX Transportation says it twice denied producers of a movie about singer Gregg Allman the permission to shoot on the company's tracks before a freight train slammed into the film's crew in south Georgia, killing one worker and injuring six.

CSX is named as a defendant along with producers of the movie "Midnight Rider" in lawsuits by the parents of Sarah Jones, the camera assistant killed in the Feb. 20 crash, and two injured crew members. CSX filed a response Tuesday in Chatham County State Court, and also sued the film's producers for trespassing.

CSX says the filmmakers twice sought permission to shoot on its tracks and each request was denied in writing. An attorney for director Randall Miller did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday.
