Los Angeles County is paying nearly $12 million to settle a wrongful death case involving a sheriff's deputy who struck and killed a bicyclist in 2013.

Entertainment lawyer Milton Everett Olin, Jr.. 65 of Woodland Hills, was killed while out for a Sunday afternoon bike ride in Calabasas.  The collision took place on a straight section of Mulholland Highway with clear sight lines. 

The deputy was answering a message on his vehicle's computer when he veered into the designated bike lane.
