Distracted Police Officer Kills Cyclist while Driving, No Charges
Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined to press charges against a sheriff’s deputy who was apparently distracted by his mobile digital computer when he fatally struck cyclist Milton Olin Jr. in Calabasas.
The incident occurred 8 months ago, but the DA has finally announced that there will be no charges. Olin, A&M Records and Napster executive, landed on the windshield and shattered the glass before rolling off the patrol car.
Olin, who was 65 years old and is survived by his wife, Louise, and sons Christopher and Geoffrey. Louise Olin is in the process of launching the Milt Olin Foundation, dedicated to eliminating cycling-related fatalities and serious injuries through education, community awareness, collaboration and advocacy.
