Wow, such an avoidable tragedy by a simple phone call to CSX. Sad news.

I find this to be confusing though:

An eyewitness told Variety the movie crew was filming a dream sequence on a railroad trestle when a train unexpectedly crossed the bridge.

The crew, including director Randall Miller, had placed a bed on the tracks for the scene and was expecting two trains on the local bridge, one in each direction, when a third train arrived unexpectedly.
When were they expecting the trains to arrive? How did they know those trains were going to arrive? If they knew those trains were going to arrive, why didn't they know the third train would arrive? Why didn't the crew just jump off the bridge to save themselves? So many questions...
