A 63-year-old man who was punched by a Mexican film and telenovela star after a traffic incident on the Dolphin Expressway died Thursday, Jackson Memorial Hospital officials have confirmed.

Pablo Lyle, a key actor in the popular Mexican telenovela “Mi Adorable Maldición,” clashed with the Cuban-born Juan Ricardo Hernández after Lyle’s car cut him off on Sunday on the Dolphin. Hernández got out of his car screaming and swearing and banged on the window of Lyle’s car. Two witnesses said Lyle punched him in the face and fled the scene.

Hernández suffered a brain injury that led to an internal hemorrhage that left him unconscious, a family member said. After several days in the hospital, his family said they disconnected his life-support systems.

Miami police arrested Lyle, 32, at Miami International Airport on Sunday. He was charged with assault, posted a $5,000 bond and was allowed to travel to Mexico.

After his arrest, Lyle said he punched Hernández because he feared for “the safety of his family and 6-year-old son,” who was in the car.

He later told Univision that his lawyers were handling the case. It’s not clear if he will face new charges after Hernández’s death.

A man attacked a McDonald's employee in St. Petersburg, Florida on Dec. 31, 2018 after asking for a straw. The man was later identified as Daniel Taylor. He was arrested and charged with simple battery.
