NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bassist Robert Todd Harrell of the rock band 3 Doors Down has been charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication in a crash that claimed the life of another motorist in the Nashville area, police said.

The 41-year-old musician remained jailed early Sunday in connection with the fatal crash Friday night on Interstate 40 that killed Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., 47, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said.

A police statement said Harrell was driving west at high speeds in the Nashville suburb of Hermitage when his car clipped a pickup driven by Shoulders. Police said the pickup went out of control, went down an embankment and overturned. Shoulders was ejected.

The statement said Harrell showed signs of impairment during field sobriety tasks and “acknowledged consuming hard cider and taking prescription Lortab” and Xanax.
