It's very sad, even more so because she wasn't wearing a helmet. Apparently the shot was more important than safety. RIP Rider...

I believe I read that the Canadian equivalent of OSHA is investigating the incident. Perhaps in the age of CGI there may indeed have been a more safe way to do the shot. The description sounds like the throttle stuck open after several successful test runs.

That sucks. Stunt people take calculated risks. Part of the job but it still sucks when things go wrong. RIP rider.

Probably a good point. At this stage, using a green-painted helmet and green pinhole visor would let them CGI in the lead actor's head. It'd be at least as convincing as hair and makeup on the stunt double. The risk will never be completely gone, but it would be significantly less.

May she ride immortal in the canyons of Valhalla.
