1. Iowa State Patrol says that Chris Soules took off after rear-ending his pickup truck into a tractor.

2. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death. This is what the court ruled during his hearing on Tuesday, April 25. The decision is not final as there is still more research to be done on the incident.

3. Court documents show that Chris Soules was allegedly in possession of alcoholic containers and beverages. However, it isn't certain whether the containers in the vehicle were full or empty. It also isn't certain whether The Bachelor star  was intoxicated while driving when the accident occurred.

4. He has not been charged with driving under the influence. Several hours passed before Soules had his blood tested for alcohol in the hospital after the accident. Therefore, even if he was intoxicated during the crash, it didn't show up in the test result.

5. A statement from Soule’s representative was released, saying, “Chris Soules was involved in an accident Monday evening (April 24) 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.”

6. A family member of Mr. Mosher said that he believed the whole thing to be a freak accident. He was quoted as saying, “I believe it was a very tragic, sad accident that took the life of a guy who was just coming home from work,” said Robert Roepke, whose daughter is married to the victim’s son.

7. Soules and Mr. Mosher had farms that bordered each other and actually knew each other, although they were in different social circles.

8. After leaving the scene of the car crash, Chris Soules reportedly went back to his house, went inside and refused to leave when authorities showed up. It took them several hours before they got a search warrant.

9. While Soules was taken to the hospital to do a blood test for alcohol, it had been hours since the crash so nothing showed up. However, authorities say that they will look for alternative proof, like checking with the local bars to see if he was there that night.

10. There are rumors going around that the tractor didn’t have lights on, and in fact didn’t even have lights. However, it wasn’t entirely dark outside, making that detail less significant.

11. Soules deleted his Instagram following the incident. Since his time on The Bachelor in 2015, Soules had been documenting his life via Instagram. While his other social channels remain functioning, he made sure to remove his Instagram account from the public eye. It is not yet known why.

12. Soules called 911 before fleeing the scene. According to the dispatch, someone started doing CPR on the victim, but then the authorities say that someone (Soules) fled from the scene in a red truck. The authorities were able to identify Soules as the driver and continued to pursue him to his home.

13. Soules was charged with leaving the scene of a deadly crash, resulting in death. That is a felony. He pleaded guilty in November 2018 to a reduced misdemeanor scene of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in serious injury. He accepted a suspended two year prison sentence and was assigned two years of probation. Soules had to pay a $625 fine and a $218.74 surcharge, plus other fines and court costs. He was ordered to "abstain from all mood-altering substances and not use or consume alcoholic beverages or other drugs or a combination of such substances." He was also ordered to pay the vicitm's family, who he knew $2.5 million.

14. Now, more than two years later, Soules is speaking out about the accident. In an interview with People, Soules spoke about the tragis accident. He said: “I think about it every day. I was out of my mind. I felt like I did everything in my power when I was there and I didn’t know what else to do. I didn’t know what happened. I didn’t know anything. I just knew it was really bad and I was scared. I saw some dark times. I’m in the middle of nowhere as it is and I was even deeper in the isolation and the guilt. I thought many times that it would have been easier on the other side. I was giving chest compressions and continued to do CPR until eventually I spat out [Mosher’s] blood. He coughed up blood in my mouth. At that point I thought it didn’t seem to be doing a lot of good. I was scared. And I remember thinking he might not make it.” When the paramedics arrived, “I remember praying [that he would be okay].”
