Soules, aka “Farmer Chris”, is also being investigated for alleged possession of alcohol at the time of the crash.
The former star of The Bachelor Chris Soules was arrested on Monday night in Iowa. He’s accused of fleeing the scene of a car crash that resulted in a death, the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to BuzzFeed News.
According to a news release, at 8:20 pm on Monday night, the sheriff's office received a 911 call about a pickup truck that had collided with a tractor north of Aurora in Buchanan County.
Soules was the driver of the truck, officials said, and a man later identified as 66-year-old Kenneth E. Mosher was behind the wheel of the tractor.
Mosher was pronounced dead after an ambulance took him to a nearby hospital.
Iowa State Patrol told the Des Moines Register that Soules attempted to leave the accident by foot, but police were able to track him down and arrest him. Soules was then taken to the hospital, and eventually to jail.
