Milton Olin Jr., Ex-Napster Exec., Killed in Collision With Sheriff’s Patrol Car While Biking
Milton Olin Jr., 65-years-old ex-Napster executive and of Woodland Hills, Calif., died Sunday in the 22000 block of Mulholland Highway. At 1:05 p.m., the bicycle he was riding “collided with” the patrol car, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
According to Lt. Michael Williams of the sheriff’s Malibu/Lost Hills Station, the deputy’s cruiser was traveling in the same direction as Olin. The stretch of Mulholland Highway where the collision occurred has a painted bike lane. The unidentified deputy was transported to the hospital with minor injuries and the patrol car was towed from the scene. Olin was pronounced dead at the scene.
Olin was an executive at both Napster and A&M Records and an entertainment lawyer by trade. He’s listed as an advisor to U.S. Equity Holdings on their webpage. He is also listed as a founding partner at the law firm Altschul & Olin. At Napster he was chief operating officer after a 14-year career at A&M records.
This comes just after a new law signed by Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown states that drivers must stay at least 3 feet away from cyclists when passing.
The cause of the collision remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Lost Hills/Malibu Station.
