Witness to Sam Adams: "Hey, Dude, Your Fly is Down and Your Pants are Unbuttoned"

Police report from Sam Adams’ truck* accident from Sunday :

“I went over to check the guy in the white truck,” Joslin said. “I said, ‘Hey dude, your fly is down, and your pants are unbuttoned,” Joslin recalled. “He said, ‘Oh, thanks.’ I said, ‘Are you ok?’ He was a little dazed.’ “Joslin said he smelled alcohol on Adams’ breath, and said his eyes looked “a little glazed.”

Perhaps Sam was too busy to notice that the guy in front of him was signaling a right turn before he plowed into him from behind:

The driver of the Subaru Mayor Sam Adams hit on Sunday said his right turn signal was on before Adams’ white GMC pickup tried to pass him on the right, causing a three-car collision, according to a second special report Portland police released Wednesday.
I suppose you could ‘set up’ the Mayor if you wanted to, but none of the people around knew who he was until the cops got there and told them.

Adams told police he thought the Subaru was going to turn left and that’s why he began to pass on the right. The mayor also said in an interview that he was driving west on North Hayden Island Drive into the sun when the accident occurred.

The special police report released Wednesday was written by the first officer to respond, Officer Derek Harris, and typed two days after the accident, at his commander’s request given media inquiries.

Joslin, according to Harris’s report, told him that he saw Adams’ white pickup push the Subaru into a parked Honda Accord in the Car Toys lot, and the pickup’s tires were spinning.
