Isaac Brock Caused a Five-Car Fender Bender in Southeast Portland

The Modest Mouse frontman fell asleep at the wheel crossing the Morrison Bridge, hitting a Portland Parks pickup truck.

He didn't back into a cop car, but Modest Mouse singer Isaac Brock did ram into the back of an official city vehicle earlier today, causing a minor fender-bender involving three other cars.

As first reported by The Oregonian, Brock fell asleep at the wheel of his car after crossing the Morrison Bridge at Southeast Grand Avenue Wednesday morning and hit the back of a truck belonging to Portland Parks. According to police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson, the impact caused the truck to hit the back of a Subaru, which then slammed into another Subaru, which likely hit a fifth car that drove off. No word on if it was also a Subaru.

Brock showed no signs of being intoxicated, and was cited for careless driving.

Brock is back in town after a co-headlining tour with Brand New, which ended at Moda Center on Sunday night.

No serious injuries were reported. Guess you could say everybody ended up okay-yay.
