A game show taping has led to the death of a 61-year-old man, the Associated Press reports. The victim was a pedestrian in Vancouver, B.C., who died after being hit by a car used in the Canadian version of "Cash Cab."

The game show takes place in a taxi, and a replica taxi used in the show struck and killed a Vancouver pedestrian after ending production for the day, the story reports. The victim, from Surrey, B.C., died in a hospital soon after he was hit by the cab.

A producer for the program was driving the vehicle back to a storage facility after filming for the day had ended, the story says, citing the show’s Canadian producer.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family," said Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions, which produces the Canadian show.
