The truck went out of control, traveled down an embankment and overturned, police said. Harrell was charged early on Saturday. Police identified the man killed in the crash as Paul Howard Shoulders Jr.. The band's website said in a statement that the members were "deeply saddened" by Shoulders' death. "Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time," they said. Police said Shoulders was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the truck.
