A former Napster executive was struck and killed by an L.A. County Sheriff's patrol car while he was biking in Calabasas on Sunday.Milton Everett Olin, Jr., 65, was cycling in the bike lane on Mulholland Highway around 1 p.m. in the same direction as the deputy when he was hit by the patrol car, according to KPCC and the Los Angeles Times. Olin smashed into the windshield and the glass shattered and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The deputy, who suffered cuts on his arms and had some pieces of glass in his eyes, was taken to a local hospital to be treated for his minor injuries. Officials told KABC that the deputy was doing a routine patrol when the collision occurred.

Olin, from Woodland Hills, was formerly the COO of Napster during 2000 to 2002 and a prominent entertainment lawyer at Altschul & Olin LLC in Encino, reported Daily Mail. He is survived by his two sons.
