Chris Soules' Cell Phone May Determine Whether He's Charged With Vehicular Manslaughter

Plus, the man who died in the crash has been identified. 

On Monday, former Bachelor star Chris Soules was involved in a car crash that killed one driver. Soules was arrested at his home after fleeing the scene of the fatal crash. It was later discovered that he had alcholic beverages and containers in his car, but it was never made clear if he was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Now, Soules' cell phone data will be used to determine his responsibility in the accident.

According to TMZ, police have seized Soules' phone and will be looking at data, text, and social media usage at the time of the accident to determine if he was distracted by his mobile device proceeding the crash. Soules has already deleted his Instagram and Twitter accounts, which reportedly often contained photos of sunsets he took while driving. If Soules is discovered to have been on his phone during the crash, it is likely he will face vehicular manslaughter charges. He already faces felony charges for leaving the scene of the accident. Sources suggest he was not speeding at the time of the accident and that he attempted to break before rear-ending the tractor trailer he ultimately hit.

People has now revealed that the man killed by Soules, Kenneth Eugene “Kenny” Mosher, was a U.S. Army veteren who served in Vietnam.

 “Kenny loved playing golf, farming and spending his winters in Florida — biking and visiting his mother. His family was most important to him, especially his grandchildren. He had recently been teaching them how to drive the Ranger,” reads Mosher’s obituary in the local Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier newspaper.

Mosher is survived by his wife, two sons, and three grandchildren. His funeral will be held the day before Soules is due back in court.
