Todd Harrell, bassist for the group 3 Doors Down, was arrested late Friday night and charged with vehicular homicide following a deadly crash in Nashville, TN.

According to police, Harrell was driving at a high rate of speed when his car clipped a Ford pickup truck ... which then went out of control, struck a guardrail, traveled down an embankment and overturned.

Police say the driver of the pickup was not wearing a seatbelt. He was transferred to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Harrell showed signs of impairment during field sobriety tests and admitted to police he had been drinking hard cider and taking prescription Lortab (a painkiller) and Xanax.

While being booked at the jail, Davidson County Sheriff's deputies say they discovered a plastic bag in Harrell's sock that contained more Xanax pills along with Oxycodone and Oxymorphone pills.

Harrell was charged with vehicular homicide and bringing controlled substances into the jail and is being held on $100,000 bond.

Harrell was arrested last year for DUI ... an incident in which he also crashed into another vehicle.

The comments should be fascinating. TMZ does so many race-baiting posts. Let's see if his color is relevant to the posters, like it's relevant when any Black artist is in trouble here on TMZ.

This is so sad. 3 Doors Down is my favorite group. You had it made Todd, touring with an awesome group and now that's been all thrown away. Sad part is you have enough money where you could have called a cab or better yet limo and not drink and drive. Anybody reading this who drinks and drive please learn from this. It's just so not worth it.

It's bad enough when you don't learn from watching others make mistakes, but when you don't learn from your own, you need to be taught.

This really is sad. This guy obviously has a drug and alcohol problem but yet felt entitled enough to continue driving after being busted for it once already. We all make mistakes, but he not some young dumb kid- he's a middle aged man that should know better. Not to mention he's rich and it would be just as easy to have a driver. He's going to have to live with this for the rest of his life.
