TVD Mourns the Loss of Beloved Crew Member

On February 20th, a tragic train collision left 1 dead and many others injured.

While shooting a train sequence for the film Midnight Rider, a northbound CSX Railroad train ran through the tracks and fatally struck crew member Sarah Jones. Sarah Jones was also a crew member for The Vampire Diaries.

Sarah’s untimely death has, undoubtedly, hit the TVD cast very hard. They have taken to social media to show their love and support for Sarah.

The cast is reaching out to fans for support in this tough time. They have created a Facebook page dedicated to Sarah. The page is called “Slates for Sarah” and it provides an opportunity to show love for Sarah’s memory. Pictures of slates from around the world have been uploaded to this page in Sarah’s memory. The cast is also promoting a petition to add Sarah to The Academy Awards Memoriam Tribute. Show your support for Sarah and the TVD cast by visiting the FB page and petition page.

Our hearts and prayers are with the cast and crew of TVD.
