Back in August 2016, Modest Mouse frontman Issac Brock was in a pretty bad wreck in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, citing that he fell asleep at the wheel. He apparently didn’t stop or attempt to stop at all, plowing into a city truck, pushing it forward into traffic and causing a multi-vehicle accident. The driver, Cassidy Kane, is now suing for damages of more than $865,000 due to numerous back injuries including herniated disks, also numbness in her limbs since the accident which has forced her to get steroid injections, and even may have to undergo surgery.
At the time of the crash, police were unable to determine if Brock was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and he was cited on scene for careless driving; he paid a $435 fine in punishment.
This lawsuit was filed on November 29, and neither Isaac Brock nor his representatives have commented on it yet.
