Written By:

The second part of Deadpool is a movie most people are waiting for, owing to some crazy action sequence and the stunts involved. Sadly, a stunt sequence went all wrong, and the rider passed away.

The rider was SJ Harris, a stuntwoman, performing her first gig for a movie. The incident took place in Vancouver. Witnesses say that the stuntwoman lost control of her motorcycle, jumped a curb, and crashed into a glass window.

Harris was treated at the scene by an ambulance personnel but passed away. Harris was performing the stunt for Zazie Beetz, who plays a character named Domino for the movie. Production was shut down immediately following the accident.

According to reports, Harris was not wearing a helmet during the stunt sequence since the role she was playing did not require Domino to wear one. If a helmet could have saved her life is something to ponder about.
