SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Attorneys who sued Gregg Allman after a camera assistant was killed during filming of a biographical movie about the singer now say he's not to blame for the young woman's death.

Sarah Jones was killed in February after being struck by a train on a railroad bridge in southeast Georgia,

Lawyers for the family of the 27-year-old said Thursday they have dropped all civil claims against Allman after determining he "had no involvement" in decisions that led to her death in rural Wayne County.

Jones' parents are still seeking damages against others including director Randall Miller and his production company. Miller and three others also face criminal charges in the train crash, which injured six other crew members.

Allman's attorney, David Long-Daniels, did not immediately return a phone message.
