Hollywood Actor Motorcycle Crash Changes His Perspective

Gerard Butler, star of the environmental disaster film, Geostorm, was involved in a crash on his motorcycle.

Butler was lucky to come away with 5 fractures in his right foot and torn meniscus. At least, Butler was able to leave the accident with a new outlook on life.

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Heightened After Set Crash

Following the fatal accident that killed Joi Harris in Vancouver, many industry professionals are left wondering why Harris was put in that position. Harris, an acclaimed road racer, had zero experience doing stunts for films. Stunt coordinators and drivers alike are left baffled and in shock over her tragic death. Some were critical of the decision to let Harris attempt the stunt. Conrad Palmisano, a film stunt coordinator with 47 years of expertise in the industry, said, "she rode 300cc cycles. The one she crashed on was 900cc motorcycle - much bigger, more powerful."
