Female Stunt Driver Dies On The Sets Of Deadpool 2
An unfortunate incident occurred on the sets of Deadpool 2 earlier yesterday, while the crew was shooting in Vancouver, Canada.
Joi SJ Harris, who has unfortunately lost her life to the accident, was “standing on the bike, slams into that building, clearly…out of control and clearly not planned.” When the incident initially transpired, most onlookers thought it to be a part of the film, however, soon realizing the accident had been unintended.
The incident occurred at the Jack Poole Plaza in Vancouver, where the rider apparently was airborne as she went crashing straight into glass at the Shaw Tower.
In a statement, the police confirmed that the Harris had indeed passed away.
Vancouver Police can confirm that a female stunt driver has died on the set of Deadpool 2 during a stunt on a motorcycle.
Witnesses to the accident claimed that post the incident there was absolute chaos in the area.

Speaking with Global News, one onlooker stated – “People were running on the sidewalk, the motorcycle comes flying across the street, looks like from a ramp because it was in the air.”
Starring Ryan Reynolds & Josh Brolin, Deadpool 2 is scheduled to release for June 2018.
