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.

i knew milt as a young lawyer at mitchell silberberg & Knupp some 35+ years ago. He was a nice man. This is shocking. How is the cop car window hit in the middle and not the right side where presumably the sheriff would have hit milt? riding bikes in las is dangerous….but we have few bike lanes that milt was presumably in. was the deputy driving into some sort of glaring sun? the whole thing sounds and appears suspect.
