Tonight at 7: Damien Appears on Which Way L.A. Discussing the Milt Olin Crash

wwla

At 7 p.m. this evening, cyclists will be pedaling to the County District Attorney’s Office for a vigil honoring Milt Olin. Olin is the cyclist killed by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Wood while cycling legally in a bicycle lane along Mulholland Highway in Calabasas on the afternoon of December 8th.

At roughly the same time, KCRW’s news/talk show Which Way L.A. will air an interview with local public safety officials and myself discussing the crash, the investigation, the D.A.’s decision not to press charges, and where we go from here. There’s no word on who else will be joining Warren Olney and myself, but I’m sure we will have a lively discussion.

(UPDATE: I just completed the interview. I was joined by LADOT Bicycle Coordinator Michelle Mowery and David Teater of the National Safety Council.)

The interview will be broadcast at 89.9 on the F.M. dial and at the KCRW website. We will provide a direct link to the interview in tomorrow’s “Today’s Headlines” post.

    Good show. I hope your statement about the rarity of getting rear-ended while cycling isn’t an implied endorsement of vehicular cycling (an example of how something can be both legal and dumb at the same time).
