Chris Soules, who starred as the desirable protagonist in The Bachelor season nineteen, has been arrested following a motorvehicle accident that caused the death of the other driver. Soules attempted to flee the scene.
TMZ reports that Soules' Chevy pickup rear ended a John Deere tractor trailer, pushing it into a ditch. The driver of the trailer was rushed to a hospital in an ambulence and died shortly thereafter.
Officials say that Soules is accused of “leaving the scene of an accident – a death-related accident." Soules has not had his bail hearing yet, and he is still in police custody. People adds that Soules was not charged with driving under the influence.
ABC has declined to comment on the situation.
Soules had notably proposed to Whitney Bischoff in 2015, but the two broke up soon after the show ended.
