Cash Cab Death, A pedestrian was fatally beaten by a taxi replication used for the Canadian version of “Cash Cab” game show in Vancouver on Friday night. The 61-year-0LD was beaten by the vehicle in downtown Eastside district of the city and headed for a storage facility. A farmer was driving home after finishing a day’s production, according to Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions Inc., which produces the show.
The victim died shortly afterwards in hospital. His identity was not released.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their friends and family.” Burnstein said. “My heart is with the driver, a member of our technical staff, which is shaken and devastated by this tragic accident, like all our team.”
The cause of the accident is still being determined and no charges have been filed so far, the Vancouver police officer Lindsey Houghton told The Associated Press.
