Luis Borges, a well-known Venezuelan DJ who contributed to the production of an album that received a Latin Grammy nomination in 2012, was struck and killed in an accident near Lake Buena Vista in late August. He was reportedly on vacation in Orlando to celebrate his upcoming 35th birthday. News of the musician’s death quickly generated a storm of social media posts from fans, mourning the death of the DJ who was popular in Latin America for his dance and electronic music.
The driver of the vehicle claimed that he did not see Borges in the street due to the heavy rain. While there is no suspicion of speeding or impairment in the crash, this accident does stand as a reminder of just how dangerous the roads can be for pedestrians and bicyclists in Central Florida, which has been ranked as the most dangerous place for pedestrians in America for the last three years.
