Los Angeles DA Won't Prosecute in Distracted Driving Case Late last year, LA Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Wood was driving along Mullhand Drive, returning from a fire call in Calabasas. Milton Olin was on his bike in the bicycle lane. Wood was typing on his mobile computer, and his car struck Olin from behind and killed him. Last week, the DA said there won’t be any prosecution. Since Wood was responding to another deputy’s call when he was distracted, he was acting in the course of his duties. Today, cyclists are taking to the streets in protest.
