CALABASAS, Calif. — A former chief operating officer of the online file-sharing service Napster was killed when he was struck by a sheriff’s patrol car while riding a bicycle, authorities said Monday.
Lawyer and music industry veteran Milton Everett Olin Jr. of Woodland Hills died Sunday, according to coroner’s Lt. Joe Bale.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Olin and the patrol car were traveling in the same direction on Mulholland Highway in suburban Calabasas when the collision occurred.
The deputy, who was not named, was taken to a hospital for treatment of cuts and bruises.
The cause of the crash was under investigation.
In addition to once serving as a top executive for Napster, the 65-year-old Olin was a prominent entertainment attorney for Altschul & Olin LLP, which he co-founded, the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/18iDA4i ) reported.Prior to Napster, Olin worked for A&M Records as vice president of business development and was responsible for signing artists and acquiring music rights.
Napster was a pioneer in online music sharing, leading to lawsuits by Metallica and other acts in 2000. The suits eventually forced a settlement that required Napster to evolve into a pay-for-use service that became something of a model for today’s streaming companies.
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A bicyclist was struck and killed by a sheriff’s radio car while riding on Mulholland Highway Sunday.
Lt. Michael Williams of the sheriff’s Malibu/Lost Hills station said the cyclist was hit in the 22000 block of Mulholland Highway at approximately 1:05 p.m. and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The coroner’s office has identified the victim as 65-year-old Milton Everett Olin Jr., of Woodland Hills. The L.A. sheriff’s deputy who was driving the vehicle has not been named.
Investigators confirmed to CBS2′s Melanie Woodrow the deputy was on routine patrol and was not responding to an emergency at the time of the collision. They also confirmed that Olin, a prominent entertainment attorney, was in the bike lane when he was struck.
L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. Sgt. Joseph Jaki said speed was not a factor in the crash. Drugs and alcohol are also not believed to be factors.
Jaki said the deputy is expected to be formally interviewed on Monday after undergoing a medical procedure. He also expressed his sympathies about the incident.
“It’s very tough when we’re involved in an incident like this because it’s our job to protect the people and help people and we’re obviously very sad that something like this has happened,” he said.
