Racer Joi "SJ" Harris Dies In Performing Stuntwork In Vancouver

Joi Harris on the track

AMA racer Joi Harris, known by many as SJ SidewayZ, died today in Vancouver, Canada, not on the track but performing a stunt for the superhero movie Deadpool 2. While performing a motorcycle stunt for a new character, she is reported to have lost control and ended up going off-course and bodily colliding with a thick window on a adjacent highrise. Unfortunately she was pronounced dead at the incident site. The scene in question required her to perform the stunt without a helmet, a factor that looks likely to have played a role in the fatal injury.
