Global News reports that the female victim lost control of the motorcycle she was riding while filming a sequence for the movie shortly after 8am, causing her to ram the bike into the glass-enclosed lobby of the Shaw Tower in Vancouver.

Paramedics quickly arrived at the waterfront office building in the British Columbia city and were able to pull the woman from the wreckage and get her to the hospital, but her injuries were too severe.

Audio from the 911 call made after the crash reveals that the woman was not moving following the crash, with one man stating she flew across the street and remained airborne as she crashed through the glass.

The rescue vehicle was on-site for 45 minutes after loading in the victim and drove off without using its sirens according to CTV Vancouver.

“Vancouver Police can confirm that a female stunt driver has died on the set of Deadpool during a stunt on a motorcycle,’ the local force said in a statement Monday.
