NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The bassist for rock band 3 Doors Down is out of jail after a fatal interstate crash in Nashville.

Police said 41-year-old Todd Harrell was driving under the influence and speeding Friday night when his car clipped a pickup truck that lost control and flipped, killing the driver.

Police said Harrell acknowledged drinking and taking the prescription drugs Lortab and Xanax.

He is also accused of bringing Xanax, oxycodone and oxymorphone pills into the jail concealed in his sock.

Harrell was released on $100,000 bond Tuesday afternoon. He has a court appearance on Thursday. Charges include vehicular homicide by intoxication.

An attorney for Harrell did not immediately respond to a message left at his office.

On Monday, the band canceled its U.S. appearances for April and May.
