`Cash Cab' Taxi Hits, Kills Vancouver Pedestrian

Associated Press, 07.18.11, 06:53 AM EDT




VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- A replica taxi used in the

Canadian version of the TV game show "Cash Cab" struck

and killed a pedestrian after finishing production for the day in



Vancouver Police said a 61-year-old man from Surrey, B.C.,

died in a hospital shortly after being struck by the mock yellow

cab late Friday night in the city's Downtown Eastside district.

Police did not immediately release the victim's identity.


The accident happened as a producer was driving the replica cab

back to a storage facility after filming for the day had been completed,

said Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions Inc.,

which produces the show's Canadian version.


"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends

and his family." said Burnstein. "My heart also goes out to the

driver of the vehicle, a member of our technical staff, who is

shaken and devastated by this tragic accident, as is our entire team."


Vancouver Police Constable Lindsey Houghton said the

circumstances leading to the accident were still being

determined and no charges have been filed so far.


On "Cash Cab," broadcast in North America on the Discovery

Channel, unassuming people who flag down a replica yellow

taxi become instant contestants on a game show, answering

trivia questions for cash prizes.
