AceShowbiz - An investigation into the death of a stuntwoman in a motorcycle accident on the set of "Deadpool 2" has blamed a series of safety errors.
Joi Harris, the first African American woman licensed to compete in American Motorcyclist Association races, died in August 2017 when she lost control of her motorcycle and crashed through the glass facade of a tower block on the film's set in Vancouver, Canada.
According to the BBC, officials from Canadian government agency WorkSafeBC ruled that producers should have ensured Harris was wearing a helmet during the stunt and that barriers should have been in place to stop her "leaving the set perimeter".
Bosses at the 2018 film's studio, 20th Century Fox, challenged some of the report's findings in a statement, but said they had reviewed their safety procedures.
"Safety is our top priority, and while we respectfully disagree with some of the report's findings, Fox thoroughly reviewed its stunt safety protocols immediately following the tragic accident and has revised and implemented enhanced safety procedures and enforcement," they explained.
The report also stated that Fox bosses had, "failed to conduct a risk assessment addressing safety controls, speed of the motorcycle, and equipment limitations".
Earlier this year, a lawyer for Harris's family indicated they had reached an out-of-court settlement with the studio.
He led a minute's silence for Harris when the cast returned to the set, while Beetz also expressed her condolences.
