Police: Harrell of 3 Doors Down Rock Band Charged With Vehicular Homicide by Intoxication
Bassist Robert Todd Harrell of the rock band 3 Doors Down has been charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication after an interstate crash 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 accident late Friday night on Interstate 40 that claimed the life of 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said.
The police statement said a preliminary investigation showed Harrell was driving west at a high rate of speed when his car clipped a pickup truck driven by Shoulders near Hermitage, a Nashville suburb. Police said the pickup then went out of control down an embankment and overturned, ejecting Shoulders.
