The victim was Joi “SJ” Harris, a professional motorcycle racer from Brooklyn, NY and the first African-American licensed female in the sport … her family confirms to TMZ.

She was not a member of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists — a Canadian actors union. “Deadpool 2” was also her first film as a stunt driver.

We broke the story … Harris lost control of her motorcycle during filming in Vancouver, which sent her airborne through a glass window of a ground floor studio. Eyewitnesses say the brakes were never applied … and she was also not wearing a helmet. She died on the scene.

It’s the second major mishap involving stunts in as many days. Tom Cruise was badly injured during a failed stunt on the set of “Mission: Impossible 6.”

It’s unclear how old Harris was at the time of her death. Still … RIP
