But it's unclear if he was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

On Monday night, former Bachelor protagonist Chris Soules was involved in a car accident that killed one driver. Soules apparently fled the scene, leading to his arrest shortly after. Now, new details are emerging on the incident.

People reports that Soules has appeared in court to explain the situation. Court documents suggest that Soules had alcoholic drinks and containers in the car, although authorities have not said that he was intoxicated at the time of the crash. 

The driver of the tractor who perished from injuries sustained during the accident has since been identified as Kenneth Mosher of Aurora, Iowa. When Soules had fled the scene he returned home and refused to leave until police issued a warrant hours later.

“This is a very sad situation,” said Whitney Bischoff, Soules' ex-fiance who he famously courted on reality TV. “I’m keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers, especially the victim and his family.”

Soules' bail has been set at $10,000 and he has reportedly retained an attorney.
