BUCHANAN COUNTY, Iowa – Chris Soules, former star of “The Bachelor”, has been arrested for allegedly leaving the scene of a crash where someone was killed.
Officials say 66-year-old Kenneth Mosher of Aurora died after the tractor he was operating was rear-ended by a pickup truck around 8:20 p.m. Monday.
Officials say Soules was driving the pickup truck that hit Mosher’s tractor, sending it rolling into the east ditch along Buchanan County Road W45. The truck rolled into the west ditch.
Mosher was transported to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
Sgt. Scott Bright with the Iowa State Patrol told WHO-TV Soules was arrested around 1:16 a.m. Tuesday in connection with the fatal crash. He has been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
