The Geico insurance spokesman was killed Tuesday afternoon.

The Geico Auto Insurance spokes-gecko was run over and killed Tuesday in a pedestrian accident. The six inch tall reptile was crossing a busy New York street to get a taxi and was not seen by a UPS delivery truck.

Driver John Lichter of Queens was visibly upset. "I didn't see the little guy," he said. "I mean, I'm sitting up in a big truck and he wasn't even in the crosswalk or nothing. How did I know I was supposed to watch out for lizards?"

Condolences poured in to the Geico insurance offices from such luminaries as the AFLAC duck, The Pillsbury Dough Bow, Speedy Alka Seltzer, Charlie Tuna, and the Jolly Green Giant.

Family did allow a picture of the deceased to be published and apologizes if the graphic nature offends anyone. They felt, however, that the violent results of city traffic should be portrayed at its worst nature.

What can Brown do for you? How about running over that annoying Dick Vitale next!
