Jigme K. Norbu (pronounced JIG'-me NOHR'-boo), 45, was hit by an SUV around 7:30 p.m. on State Road A1A along the state's eastern coast, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. Police released few other details.
According to www.ambassadorforworldpeace.org, Norbu was on a Valentine's Day "Walk for Tibet" some 300 miles from St. Augustine south to West Palm Beach. Norbu of Bloomington, Ind., the son of the Dalai Lama's late brother, Taktser Rinpoche, has done similar walks several other times, including one of 900 miles in 2009 from Indiana to New York.
That walk marked the 50th anniversary of the failed Tibetan rebellion against Chinese rule that resulted in the exile of his uncle, who is Tibet's top spiritual leader.
