The former COO of Napster was killed Sunday during a bike ride in L.A. when he was struck by a Sheriff's patrol car on Mulholland Highway.

65-year-old Milton Olin Jr. -- who worked at the famous music-sharing site from 2000 to 2002 -- was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash occurred around 1pm and witnesses say Olin was in the bike lane when he was struck.

As for the Sheriff's deputy -- he was hospitalized for cuts to his face and eye stemming from shattered glass from the windshield of the patrol car.

Cops are investigating -- and so far, officials say neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be involved.

The damage to the vehicle indicates (to me) the vehicle was traveling at a rate of speed not suitable for any road conditions and the terrain.

I live in Toronto - Bikers have it tough - feel sorry for them. They are always in the news for being in an accident with a car or truck.

There is no room period , for bikes to be on the street. Need their own bike lane for safety.

So sad. Crazy how a life can end in an instant. Prayers to his loved ones. People who choose careers in law enforcement are amazing human beings. All of the crap they see on a day to day basis, and put their lives in danger. When we are sound asleep, they are out there. So I seriously can't stand the cop bashing comments. It is unfortunate that this cop caused this, but to hate on cops is pathetic.

The cop suffered cuts from the guy hitting the windshield, hardly worth mentioning.

Just from the looks of the picture of the windshield, dude was hit pretty hard, right up the middle and broke the glass clear through. If he was indeed in the bike lane, than liar liar pants on fire for the PD. Somebody with a badge wasn't paying attention and driving a little fast in my opinion. Sorry for his family.

Bet he won't get a vehicular homicide charge and tax payers will pay for his medical bills.
