She somehow lost control of the bike, drove off set and crashed through a window across the street. Harris was an accomplished motorcycle racer from Brooklyn, New York, and billed herself as the first African American woman to ride in sanctioned road races. Deadpool 2 was her first film as a stunt performer, according to movie industry websites. WorkSafe BC released its incident investigation report into her death Wednesday.
