New 'Deadpool 2' details released following on-set death

According to the report - based on interviews with employer representatives on the site - Ms. Harris, a well-regarded motorcycle racer in the United States, had rehearsed a stunt that called for her to ride her bike in an area cordoned off by the Vancouver Police Department.

Harris, filling in for Zazie Beetz, was not wearing a helmet when her bike's throttle became engaged, leading to the fatal crash.

WorkSafeBC is continuing to investigate and has asked the local production company to conduct both a preliminary investigation, which was due Wednesday, and a full investigation, due one month from the incident.

"My heart has been breaking the past two days and I have been searching what to say or do", Beetz wrote.

A report by WorkSafeBC, a statutory agency, which oversees occupational safety in the province, and The Coroners Service of British Columbia WorkSafeBC found that "a temporary worksite had been set up to record a film scene for a movie production".

"Her exit was a safety ramp to a big platform where the bike was supposed to stop, but she overshot the platform, hit a curb, and was thrown from the bike through a glass window", a source close to the production said.

A professional motorbike racer from NY, she was on her first movie as a stunt double and was not wearing a crash helmet. "Joi was totally unqualified and never should have been there or put in that position". "[Harris] was the best candidate for the job".

Beetz continued: "I know that what I feel is nothing compared to what her loved ones, friends + family, are feeling".

Joi Harris, a motorcyclist known for competing in road racing events, died in a tragic accident on Monday at Canada Place Way where the sequel was being filmed.

"My heart and my love goes out to her and them all".

'My heart pours out to them - along with each and every person she touched in this world'.

A grainy video posted on TMZ's website Wednesday showed a group, identified as the "Deadpool 2" crew and Vancouver-born Reynolds, bowing their heads in a moment of silence. "The cast and crew send peace, healing, and their deepest condolences", she continued.

The stuntwoman who was tragically killed on the set of "Deadpool 2" was only going a mere 10 miles per hour, according to new details.
