Cash Cab KILLS Pedestrian!

Adam Growe - Toronto Cash Cab

This is so sad.

This Cash Cab is from the Canadian version and did not involve Ben Bailey driver of the New York Cash Cab OR Adam Growe host of Canada's Cash Cab.

"A replica taxi used in TV game show ‘Cash Cab’ struck and killed a pedestrian in Canada after finishing production for the day. A 61-year-old man from Surrey, British Columbia, died in hospital after being hit by the mock yellow cab on Friday night in Vancouver. The accident happened as a producer was driving the vehicle back to a storage facility after filming had ended for the day.

Circumstances leading to the accident are still being determined and no charges have been filed yet, a Vancouver police spokesman said. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and the taxi is now being held by investigators, reported the Vancouver Sun.

The victim is not being identified at the request of the family.

'Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family. 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'
Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions

The Canadian version of ‘Cash Cab’, hosted by licensed taxi driver and comedian Adam Growe, has been broadcast by Discovery Channel Canada since 2008."
