The Down-home Farmer Flees a Fatal Crash

By: Emma Coons

Bachelor Season 19’s star Chris Soules was booked Tuesday morning at 1:16am for

leaving the scene of a deadly car crash in Iowa. He also starred in Dancing with the Stars’ 20 th

season back in 2015 with professional dancer Whitney Carson and starred on Food Network’s

Worst Cooks in America. Leaving the crime scene of a fatal crash is a D class felony, and he

could face up to five years in prison if he is convicted. This story has garnered the attention of

Bachelor fans and Iowa residents due to his fame as an Iowa ambassador and farm industry

advocate. He called 911 at around 8:20pm Monday night to claim he had rear-ended a tractor

north of Aurora, Iowa and then that the tractor veered into a ditch. After asking if he could call

back, he left the scene. He knows that was not a good idea now.
