A 61-year-old pedestrian has died in Vancouver as a result of being struck by a fake taxi owned by the Canadian version of the popular reality game show Cash Cab. According to Forbes, the incident occurred on Friday night after filming. The fake cab was returning from a shoot and celebrity host Adam Growe (above) was not behind the wheel at the time. The vehicle was being driven by one of the show's producers. The victim was transported to a local hospital before dying of his injuries. According to the Vancouver Sun, the victim was a resident of Surrey, though no other details have been released at the request of the man's family.

Those reports also indicate that there were no witnesses in the incident and that local law enforcement have yet to file charges.

Castlewood Productions films Cash Cab for the Discovery Channel. President Andrew Burnstein said that the company's thoughts and prayers are with the deceased's family and friends as well as the driver of the cab.
