Man killed in crash allegedly involving former 'Bachelor' star


He made his initial appearance before District Court Judge Linda Fangman Tuesday morning in Buchanan County District Court and was ordered held on $10,000 cash-only bond, which Soules' mother, Linda, posted Tuesday afternoon.

Soules, who was portrayed as a wholesome country boy looking for love on season 19 of the ABC reality show, was behind the wheel of a pickup truck that rear-ended a tractor in northern Iowa near Aurora on Monday night, the Iowa State Patrol said.

"He's not conscious", Soules describes the victim, adding "he doesn't appear" to be breathing.

When the operator asked if Soules knows CPR, he responded, "No I don't".

The victim, 66-year-old grandfather Kenny Moshler, was in a life-or-death struggle.

As the call continued, Soules said the tractor isn't on top of Mosher. The operator then told Soules that law enforcement and medical were on their way to the scene.

Soules appears in court, charged with Leaving the Scene of a Fatality Motor Vehicle Accident (Class D Felony). "Chris Soules was involved in an accident on Monday evening, April 24, in a rural part of Iowa near his home", the statement reads.




According to People, both the pickup truck and tractor were heading south and officers claim that the Chevy truck driven by Chris Soules collided into the rear of the John Deere tractor driven by Mosher. His spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, issued a statement saying Soules "was devastated" to learn that Mosher died. Robert Roepke, father to Mosher's wife told People that the deadly vehicle crash that was allegedly caused by Chris Soules was a "huge mistake".

"It's tragic that someone's life has been lost and I'm sure Chris is scared".

Soules said there was blood coming out of the victim's mouth but he had a pulse. Police arrested him at his home shortly after the crash.

Meanwhile, a member of Mosher's extended family has spoken out - calling the whole ordeal a "huge mistake". Soules can then be heard calling out to bystanders asking for help.

Though it's unclear when, Soules left the scene sometime after the phone call and was arrested several hours later at his house and charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Authorities have not released further information on the accident.

Alcohol was found at the scene, and investigators are trying to determine whose it was, said Sheriff Bill Wolgram.
