(Newser) – The fake taxi used by the Canadian version of the reality TV show Cash Cab killed a 61-year-old man as a producer was returning the vehicle to a storage lot after filming, reports the Vancouver Sun. There were no witnesses, but the "taxi" is now being held by Vancouver police as they investigate the incident. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family," says the president of the production company that makes the quiz-show-in-a-taxi-ride program.
