'Cash Cab' Taxi Fatally Strikes Vancouver Man



VANCOUVER -- A man was struck and killed Saturday in Vancouver by a replica taxi used in the Canadian version of the game show "Cash Cab," TMZ reported.

A producer for the show was driving the vehicle after finishing production for the day when he struck a 61-year-old man. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later, police said. His identity has not been released.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family," said Andrew Burnstein, president of "Cash Cab" producers Castlewood Productions.

"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."

No charges have been filed yet in the incident. Burnstein said the producer who was driving the vehicle and the rest of the "Cash Cab" production team are cooperating with Vancouver police.
