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.

I always thought "3 Doors Down" was always a clean cut band. Like Creed or Barenaked Ladies.

Omg what a winner! God how I feel for the man and the family who was in the pickup truck, who lost his life. This is crazy to me, how in the world, in this day and age of enlightenment could somebody willing get behind the wheel while impaired. How ****ing dare they get on the road and put lives in danger! It makes no sense! I truely believe and have since I was a teenager that DUI's that cause death(s) should be charged with Capitol 1st degree murder. Based on the fact that EVERTYONE has been told that drinking and drugging while driving is deadly wrong! I would support any law that stated that. I would hope the rest of the country and world would do the same!
