'Bachelor' Chris Soules arrested for hit-and-run after crash kills truck driver Kenneth Mosher, 66, in Buchanan County, Iowa
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Soules, 35, was driving a pickup truck and rear-ended the tractor-trailer. The driver was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he died.
Soules, who appeared on "The Bachelor" for season 19 in 2015, is in custody and we're told he received medical attention.
Soules was booked on the charge of leaving the scene with a death.
According to the Iowa State Patrol, a pickup truck was headed south on the county road and collided with the rear of a John Deere tractor. The deceased was from Aurora but hasn’t been identified.
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.
Former "Bachelor" Chris Soules called 911 to report his crash that killed a fellow Iowa farmer, seeking medical help for the man before authorities say he left the scene and holed up in his home for hours until his arrest.
Court records filed Wednesday show Alfredo Parish and his law firm has been hired to handle Soules’ case. The former “Bachelor” faces a charge of leaving the scene of a deadly accident.
Court documents filed on Friday by his attorney show Soules was sober at the time of accident. According to the filing, both blood and urine tests were negative for drugs and alcohol.
Attorneys for Soules argued that the court was unfairly considering victim impact from Mosher’s children because they accused Soules of a crime he wasn’t found guilty of. Judge Andrea Dryer agreed and threw out the statements.
