Todd Harrell, the bassist for the band 3 Doors Down, has been arrested and charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication for the killing of a motorist in a Nashville-area car crash on Friday, The Associated Press reports.
Harrell, 41, was still in jail on Sunday, two days after clipping a pickup truck as he sped he down Interstate 40 in the Nashville suburb of Hermitage. The truck collided with a guardrail, fell down an embankment and overturned, resulting in the death of its driver, 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders Jr. Shoulders had not been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Harrell, whose car struck a retaining wall about a quarter of a mile away, “acknowledged consuming hard cider and taking prescription Lortab” as well as Xanax, police said in a statement to the AP.
He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday, and also faces charges of bringing controlled substances into jail; police found hidden in his sock a plastic bag filled with Xanax pills, Oxycodone pills and Oxymorphone pills. His bond is set at $100,000.
“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Paul Howard Shoulders, Jr. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time,” said a statement on the official website of 3 Doors Down.
