An elderly man was hit and killed in Vancouver on Friday by one of the fake taxis used in the Canadian version of the TV show "Cash Cab."

The Vancouver police state that the 61-year-old man was hit while walking in the city's Downtown Eastside district late Friday night, and died in a hospital shortly after the accident.

The incident occurred while a producer for the show was driving the fake cab back to a storage facility after filming for the day had wrapped, according to Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions Inc., which produces the show in Canada.

The driver and other employees of Castlewood Productions Inc. are cooperating with the Vancouver Police, who are still trying to figure out exactly what happened leading up to the accident. No charges have been brought against the producer.
