Lenny Robinson, known as the Route 29 Batman, has passed away following a tragic accident on Interstate 70.
Robinson first appeared on the Internet in 2012 after getting pulled over in his black Lamborghini Gallardo while dressed up as Batman.
For years, Robinson had dressed up as Batman and visited sick children in hospitals, delivering gifts, smiles and joys to their faces. Along with his Gallardo, he had a custom 60s-style Batmobile, which is what he was traveling in this past Sunday to a car show in West Virginia.
After running into some engine problems, Robinson pulled over on an unlit stretch of Interstate 70 near Hagerstown, Maryland according to police. While he was checking out the engine, a Toyota Camry slammed into the Batmobile resulting in Robinson’s death at the scene.
Police note that the Batmobile was “partially in the fast lane,” and the crash is still under investigation. No charges have been filed and the driver of the Camry was not injured in the accident.
Robinson lived outside Baltimore and made his fortune in the cleaning business, which he dedicated a bulk of to building his own Batmobile, a Batman costume and tons of toys and memorabilia that he handed out to children with cancer at hospitals all over Maryland and the District.
