Tragedy: Stuntwoman Dies In Motorcycle Accident On Set Of Deadpool 2 (Photos)

A stuntwoman has died in a motorcycle accident while filming Deadpool 2 in the Canadian city of Vancouver barely 24 hours after Tom Cruise was injured while performing a stunt on Mission Impossible 6 set.

Witnesses described how the woman lost control of the bike, jumped a kerb and crashed into a building.

The Marvel Comics sequel stars Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and has been filming in his hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, since June.

Police confirmed the driver was killed on Monday morning and workplace safety officials were investigating.

The Vancouver Sun reported that city centre streets had been closed since last week to film motorcycle and scooter scenes.

Witnesses tell CTV in Vancouver that the driver lost control, narrowly missing pedestrians, and then crashed through a glass window pane.

The network adds that an Advanced Life Support ambulance responded and remained on scene for about 45 minutes before leaving without its lights or sirens activated.

The name of the stuntwoman has not yet been released. The driver may have been filming a scene for the female character Domino, played by Zazie Beetz.

Photographers had spotted Beetz in costume riding a motorcycle last week.
