MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. – A well-known and beloved figure in Maryland has died after a traffic accident.
Lenny Robinson was better known as Batman throughout Montgomery County.
“He was magic,” said Laurie Strongin, the founder of Hope for Henry, an organization that throws superhero parties for children in hospitals.
Robinson saved up enough money to purchase a black Lamborghini, a Batman costume and superhero toys that he would hand out at children’s hospitals.
The 51-year-old became a viral sensation in 2012 when he was pulled over along Route 29 for driving without a license plate.
He was dressed in a full superhero costume during his encounter with police.
According to the Washington Post, Robinson had engine trouble Sunday night while driving on the highway.
Police say the Lamborghini was “partially in the fast lane” and Robinson was checking the engine when the car was hit by a Toyota Camry.
The Batmobile then hit Robinson, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
