VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- A pedestrian has died in
Vancouver after being hit by a fake taxi that had just completed filming a segment for the cable TV game show "Cash Cab."

Vancouver Police said the 61-year-old man died in a hospital shortly after being struck by the replica yellow cab late Friday night. Police did not immediately release the victim's identity.

Andrew Burnstein, president of the show's production company, says the accident happened as a producer was driving the mock cab back to a storage facility after filming a segment for the Canadian version of the game show.

On "Cash Cab," broadcast in North America on the Discovery Channel, unsuspecting people who flag down the replica yellow taxi
become instant contestants on a game show, answering trivia questions for cash prizes.
