Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock has been involved in a road accident in Portland.
The singer crashed into a pickup truck after falling asleep at the wheel, according to local police.
Brock allegedly failed to stop as he approached static traffic at Southeast Grand Avenue after crossing the Morrison Bridge.
He is then thought to have caused a pile up involving up to five cars after he hit the pick up truck which then struck a Subaru, which crashed into another Subaru which is thought to have hit another vehicle, which left the scene.
Brock was checked for signs of intoxication, but there were no signs of any, so police cited him for careless driving, reports The Oregonian. There were no reports of any serious injuries and the investigation has since been closed.
Modest Mouse were recently among a host of bands who donated rare and signed items to a charity auction.
Memorabilia and collectibles went under the hammer for the Studios For Schools initiative, set up by Scott Montoya, drummer for Californian band The Growlers, and his dad. The organisation aims to build music and film studios in low-income schools.
Modest Mouse also recently appeared on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
It was the band’s first TV performance since 2009, performing ‘Lampshades On Fire’ from their new album ‘Strangers To Ourselves’.
They also released their first album since 2007’s ‘We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank’ – the band’s only full-length effort with Johnny Marr as a member of the band – earlier this year.
‘Strangers To Ourselves’ features guest contributions from James Mercer (The Shins), Jim Fairchild (Grandaddy) and Dann Gallucci (Cold War Kids).
