A jury awarded $3.9 million Monday to the family of a movie worker killed on a Georgia railroad bridge in 2014, finding the railroad's owner shared in the blame for the deadly freight train collision even though the film crew was trespassing.

The parents of Sarah Jones sued CSX Transportation in Chatham County State Court, saying the railroad shared in the blame for their daughter's death.
