Ex-Napster COO struck by cop car, killed during bike ride

LOS ANGELES - Milton Olin Jr., former chief operating officer of music-sharing site Napster, died when his bicycle was struck by a police patrol car at the 22000 block of Mulholland Highway.

The accident occurred early Sunday afternoon around 1 p.m., Sgt. Braden of the Calabasas Sheriff's Department told TheWrap. The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office identified the victim as the 65-year-old Olin Jr. An autopsy has not yet been scheduled, the Coroner's Office said.

Both vehicles were reportedly traveling eastbound when they collided. The deputy, who got some glass in his eye when his windshield was apparently shattered from the impact, is "doing fine now," Braden told TheWrap.

The investigation into the accident is ongoing.

According to his LinkedIn page, Olin Jr., a senior partner at Altschul & Olin, LLP, previously served as Napster chief operating officer between 2000-2002. Olin Jr. was educated at the UCLA School of Law, which he graduated from in 1975.
