Lenny B. Robinson, the 51-year-old Maryland man known on the internet as the “Route 29 Batman,” has died. Robinson was known for driving a black Lamborghini, in full costume as The Dark Knight, to visit children’s hospitals. He was struck by a car after experiencing engine trouble and had pulled over, partially in the fast lane, to examine the problem.
The crash is currently under investigation, but no charges have been filed.
Robinson was a entrepreneur in the cleaning business, and spent his free time visiting sick children in his customized Batmobile Lamborghini and Batsuit. He became known internationally after a police video of a traffic stop, with Robinson in full costume, went viral and was mentioned in a Jimmy Fallon monologue.
