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.

New law gives cyclists 3-foot buffer from drivers

Under a new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, California drivers must stay at least 3 feet away from cyclists when passing.

The proposal, bill AB1371, came from Assemblyman Steven Bradford, D-Gardena. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was injured in a bicycle accident in 2010, sponsored the bill. The law protects cyclists from aggressive drivers and protects cyclist safety.

Currently, the law states that drivers must keep a safe distance when passing cyclists, but does not specify how far a “safe distance” is.

The new law goes into effect Sept. 16, 2014.

Brown vetoed two previous bills in 2011 and 2012, which would have allowed drivers to cross the yellow line or require them to slow to 15 mph when passing. The Governor raised concerns that those bills could hold the state liable if there was an accident resulting in the adherence to the requirements of the two previous bills.

Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, along with other lawmakers opposed the bill, saying that it would be too difficult for drivers to accurately judge a 3-foot distance while driving.

Bradford’s spokesman, Matt Stauffer, said in an interview with the local NBC affiliate that the overall aim is to remind drivers and cyclists that they have a responsibility to behave safely on the road and that case-by-case enforcement will be up to the local police.

Violating new 3-foot requirement would be punishable by fines starting at $35. If passing results in a crash that injures the cyclist, the driver could face a $220 fine.

On June 24, 2012, Rocky Martin was riding his bike and hit a pedestrian. The victim was injured in the accident and now Martin has pleaded guilty to assault.

Martin was riding east on Santa Monica Boulevard at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California prior to the accident. He then ran a red light on his bicycle and struck a person crossing the street.

The victim who was not identified suffered serious injuries.

Now, almost a year later, Martin has received his sentencing. He will serve three years on felony probation and 30 days of community services for his actions.

Though Los Angeles is heavily reliant on vehicles for transportation, bicycling is becoming much more prominent, especially in areas like Santa Monica. The police claim that they are cracking down on bicycle infractions to ensure safety of the others around riders.

Santa Monica Police Sergeant Richard Lewis states that the department plans to “focus on bicycle violations” from July through September to decrease these types of incidents.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident, whether in a vehicle, on a bike, or on foot, contact a Los Angeles accident attorney. A lawyer will assist you with identifying negligence, filing insurance claims; and can ensure that you receive the highest possible compensation for the damages that you have suffered, including punitive damages in the event of serious injury or death.

Late last night in Florence, California, a bicyclist was killed by a motorist. The driver of the vehicle was fleeing from the police due to his involvement in a shooting that took place moments before.

The victim’s identity is unknown at this moment, but he was described by authorities as a Hispanic male aged 30 to 40 years old.

The driver, whose identity has not been revealed yet either, was being chased by the cops after a shooting that occurred around East 84th Street and South Avalon Boulevard. Apparently, there was a dispute between the driver and his girlfriend and the man fired three shots into her car.

The police found him driving and followed him with cruisers and a helicopter. Once he reached East 84th Street and South Central Avenue, his dangerous driving killed the cyclist.

The driver dragged the victim across the street and then attempted to run once more. The police caught up to him and took him into custody. They are still searching for the gun that was used in the initial shooting.

Accidents are a tragic part of our lives as drivers and as cyclists. Thankfully the police was able to arrest the criminal in this instance, because many times drivers get away with it. If you are the victim of a car accident or a bicycle accident, contact the Accident Attorneys’ Group. We can help you file the correct claims, refer you to medical assistance, and award to you the highest compensation possible for your suffering.

On March 24, 18-year-old David Granados was killed after being hit by a vehicle while riding his bicycle in Valley Glen. The driver, suspected to own a 2000 or 2004 Mercedes Benz M-Class SUV, hit the bicyclist and then sped away without stopping to help. Now Los Angeles is considering offering a $50,000 reward to find the driver who killed Granados.

Granados was riding his bike, crossing Oxnard St. on Bellaire Avenue when the vehicle ran a red light going westbound on Oxnard and hit him in the intersection. Surveillance cameras show the accident; however, the identity of the driver is unclear in the footage as well as the exact model of the car.

The 18-year-old was immediately taken to the hospital, but died the next day.

The City Council must approve the reward before it can be allowed; however, if there is any information about the case, contact the police immediately.

Bicycle accidents occur frequently, especially in Los Angeles. Not all streets have bike lanes, and even the ones that do cannot always encompass a cyclist sufficiently due to traffic, construction zones, buses, etc. While driving in a vehicle, it is crucial to be aware of everything that surrounds the car. That includes motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

If you or someone you know has been involved in an auto, bicycle, motorcycle or hit and run accident, contact the Accident Attorneys’ Group today to get the help that you need.

San Francisco Lawyer Charged in Hit-and-Run Accident

Lawyers aren’t shady, but there are a selected few who give them a bad name. Since lawyers are supposed to be well-versed in law terms, you would think that they would know how to conduct themselves in trying situations. Spencer Freeman Smith, an attorney for a San Francisco law firm, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday, June 27 to a felony of a fatal hit-and-run accident.

Smith, a 33-year old man from San Ramon, was arrested in May for hitting Bo Hu and driving away at the scene of the crime. Bo Hu, a man from China, was either walking or riding his bike when Smith struck him. Hu was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident had taken place on Dougherty Road at around 11:30 p.m.

The 57-year old victim had suffered from a wrongful death. His family must be morning their loss. Families of wrongful death victims sometimes have a hard time understanding why these types of unnecessary accidents happen. If you have lost a loved one in a wrongful death accident, know that you have some legal options you can take. A preventable accident should have never happened to you and you must allow for justice to come through.

Unluckily for Smith, he did not specialize in car accidents and personal injury. Spencer Freeman Smith was an employment litigator and handled cases involving wage disputes, sexual harassment, whistle-blowers, wrongful termination, and discrimination. He worked for Financial District law firm, Smith Patten.

Not being careful and hitting a pedestrian is already bad enough, but to fatally hit them and then run away is even worse. Any good Samaritan would have at least stopped and stayed at the scene of the crime. Instead, Smith ran and left fallen car parts on the road. These forgotten car parts helped investigators link the crime to the person.

Records showed that Smith had recently bought a black 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550—the same car that matched the parts left on the road. And when officials searched Smith’s home, they found a Mercedes-Benz in his garage. There were major damages on the car which indicated that Smith had been involved in some kind of accident. The damages were on the windshield and front end of his car. The missing car parts on his car matched the car parts found on the road.

There were video surveillance recordings and cell phone records that indicated Smith was present at the scene of the crash. It was also confirmed that he was the one driving. Smith was also contacted two days after the crash by police officers, prompting Smith to immediately state that he was involved in a car accident.

Currently, Smith is free on a $60,000 bail. He is due back in court on August 8.

Since Smith was a lawyer, you would automatically assume that he would do the right thing when the accident occurred. However, he did not and is now facing the consequences of his actions. If you have lost somebody to a wrongful death accident, do not hesitate to speak with a San Francisco car accident lawyer and start fighting for your rights today.
