PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The lead singer of the alternative rock band Modest Mouse is being sued for nearly $1 million following an August 2016 traffic accident.
Isaac Brock was cited at the time for crashing into a city of Portland pick-up truck after falling asleep at the wheel. He was not charged with a crime.
In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, city employee Cassidy Kane says the accident caused herniated disks in her spine and she may need surgery.
An e-mail sent by The AP to Brock’s publicist, Hector A. Silva, was not immediately returned.
Police said Brock hit Kane’s vehicle, setting off a chain reaction that involved three or four other cars.
Modest Mouse’s biggest hit came in 2004 with “Float On” from the album “Good News for People Who Love Bad News.”
