Police say the bassist for the rock band 3 Doors Down has been charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication after a crash that claimed the life of a Nashville man.
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said in a statement that 41-year-old Robert Todd Harrell was jailed after Friday night's crash on Interstate 40 that claimed the life of a 47-year-old man.
The statement said a preliminary investigation showed Harrell was driving west at a "high rate of speed" when his car clipped a pickup driven by the other man. Police said the pickup went out of control down an embankment and overturned, ejecting the other driver.
Authorities told The Associated Press Harrell remained jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond early Sunday and they had no information if he had an attorney.
