SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Two filmmakers charged in a train collision that killed a camera assistant while shooting a movie about singer Gregg Allman say the crash "will haunt us forever," but they insist they committed no crimes.

"Midnight Rider" director Randall Miller and his wife and business partner, Jody Savin, issued a statement through their attorney Thursday. They were indicted July 3, along with an executive producer, in rural southeast Georgia on involuntary manslaughter charges.

The filmmakers were shooting on a railroad bridge Feb. 20 southwest of Savannah when a freight train plowed into the crew, injuring six people and killing 27-year-old camera assistant Sarah Jones, whose parents live in Columbia, South Carolina. Investigators say the crew was trespassing on the tracks.

Miller and Savin said the crash "was not a crime" but rather was "a horrific accident."
