Sad news out of the world of automotive game shows today:
The taxi used for Canada's version of Cash Cab struck a pedestrian in Vancouver over the weekend, leaving a 61-year old man dead.
The accident took place on Friday night, when a resident of British Columbia was crossing the street and tragically met his demise at the front of the replica taxi used by that game show. It was being driven by a producer after filming for the day had been completed.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family." said said Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions Inc. "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."
Police are investigating the incident and no charges have been filed yet.
