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.

What would happen here if a regular citizen had struck and killed a cyclist who was properly riding in the bike lane? He would be convicted of involuntary manslaughter and would do jail time. This is exactly what should happen here, law enforcement official or not.

exactly why I don't ride in bike lanes!!! If a cop can't even manage to avoid hitting us, how can I trust that the rest of the general public will??

Google map the 22000 block of Mulholland Hwy - and there is no curves in the road - or any other reason to hit a dude in the bike-lane.

A previous comment on LA Times said...Check that cell phone and I bet you have a distracted driver.

Typical pig. Murders someone and then tries to cover it up. The fascists will cover it up, no less. Beware the police state and the dirty pigs that are part of it.

They have all these federal safety laws for cars and then allow bicycles on roadways or in bicycle lanes next to 2-5 ton vehicles. Not safe at all and makes no logical sense.

I have watched cops driving and typing on laptops and texting and talking to their girlfriends on the phone. Do you think this cop will be charged for anything? How much do want to bet the entire matter disappears from the news and. nothing happens

So the cops are investigating one of their own!?! I'm sure they will find that the cop acted 'according to policy' and there will be no accountability!
