PUERTO RICO-OBIT-FELICIANO
Puerto Rican salsa great Cheo Feliciano, member of Fania All Stars, dies in car crash at 78

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 7:56 AM EDT
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico


Police say Puerto Rican salsa legend Cheo Feliciano has died in a car accident in the U.S. territory. He was 78.

Police officer Israel Arroyo says Feliciano was alone in his Jaguar when he hit a post before dawn Thursday in the northern suburb of Cupey.

Feliciano was a member of the Fania All Stars and had established his own production company in the 1980s. He also became a prominent anti-drug spokesman after becoming addicted to heroin while living in New York and returning to Puerto Rico for rehabilitation.

He had recently been treated for cancer and pneumonia.

Feliciano is survived by his wife, Coco Feliciano, and four sons.

Funeral arrangements were not immediately known.
