Stuntwoman dies on the set of Deadpool 2 during motorcycle sequence

The Vancouver Police Department has confirmed that a female stunt person died in a motorcycle crash.

VDP officers and staff from WorkSafe B.C. are on the scene.

The unnamed stuntwoman was shooting a motorcycle stunt for the sequel to 20th Century Fox's hit subversive superhero movie Deadpool, which came out in 2016. "Our hearts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of our crew member during this hard time", a spokesman for 20th Century Fox, the film's studio, said in a statement.

A witness tells The Guardian that the woman lost control of the bike and crashed through the glass window of a tower in downtown Vancouver.

Reporters on scene shared photos via social media of the area closed down by authorities.

A crumpled motorcycle was seen lying on its side at the location of the accident near Vancouver's waterfront.

David Leitch takes over for director on the sequel.

The filming of Deadpool 2 began in Vancouver recently.

The film is set to star Ryan Reynolds as the lead role, with Zazie Beetz joining as Domino and Josh Brolin joining as Cable.
