Chris Soules has got himself into some trouble.
According to the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office, Chris Soules was taken into custody on Monday night, 8:20 pm after a fatal crash occurred between a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck. A statement confirmed one male driver died.
It wasn’t long after the crash Soules was taken into the station after he left the scene of the accident where the death occurred.
Sources reported Soules was driving the pickup truck that hit the tractor-trailer from behind pushing both of the vehicles into the ditch, where both were found when police arrived.
The cause of the crash and whether or not Soules had been intoxicated is still under investigation.

He may have been picked up or walked. However, the former Bachelor was found at his home when the police arrived.
In a statement released to the public, Soules attorney stated “Chris Soules was involved in an accident Monday evening in a rural part of Iowa near his home. He was devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher, the other person in the accident, passed away. His thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Mosher’s family.”
