Popular Batman impersonator dies after being struck on side of highway

BALTIMORE, Md. (WRIC) — A Baltimore man known for visiting sick kids is dead tonight–killed–police say–in an accident involving his customized Lamborghini Batmobile.

Fifty-one-year-old Leonard Robinson made a name for himself visiting hospitals dressed as the caped crusader.

A viral video in 2012 showed him being pulled over–in costume.

Investigators say Robinson was killed Sunday night when he was checking the Batmobile’s engine last on the side of a highway and was hit by a Toyota Camry.
