For the First Time, Chris Soules Speaks About the Fatal Crash
Reality star, Chris Soules, finally broke his silence after being arrested for his involvement in a fatal crash accident that took the life of 66-year-old Kenneth Mosher from Aurora.
Soules, who rose to fame after starring on the reality show, The Bachelor season 19, stated in an exclusive interview with In Touch, that he and his family “are overwhelmed with this tragedy” but they are sticking together and are positive that they will be able to get through it.
As stated in previous reports on the incident, the Bachelor alum was driving his 2008 Chevrolet truck when he rear-ended the John Deere tractor being driven by Mosher. The blow of the crash sent both vehicles into the roadside ditches. Soules apparently called 911, after checking the victim’s pulse but still eventually fled the scene by foot.
Soules was arrested in his home in Arlington, Iowa last Tuesday at 1:16 am, a couple of hours after the deadly accident. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death, which is classified as a class D felony. It is important to note that while there were previous accounts that alcohol was found in Soules’ truck after the fatal accident, driving under the influence was not part of the charge against him.
According to the Buchanan Sheriff’s Office, Soules has been released after posting $10,000 bond. The reality star will most likely miss out on a Bachelor-related television special that is set to be filmed outside the country as he was directed to surrender his passport to authorities. Soules will also be meeting with a probation officer so that he can get fitted with an ankle monitor. He is set to appear in court on May 2.
In a statement released through his lawyer after his arrest, Chris Soules is said to be “devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher, the other person in the accident, passed away. His thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Mosher’s family.”
