(WXIA) -- The train trestle in Jessup, Georgia, where Sarah Jones lost her life, is an ancient but solid span of iron that crosses the Altamaha River. It is a busy section of track, with an estimated ten trains using it every day.
Officials say the film crew she was with did not have permission to be on the tracks, just in the surrounding area.
Jones, a camera assistant, was a popular figure in the movie industry. Thousands took time to remember her on social media, and hundreds showed up for her memorial in Atlanta over the weekend.
"She was a one of a kind person," said one attendee. "She was full of a lot of life and laughter she made everything an adventure."
Hair stylist Joyce Gilliard also knew Jones. She was inches away from her when she was killed.
Gilliard suffered a compound fracture when the train that hit them broke her arm.
