"Bachelor" Star, Ag Celebrity Chris Soules Arrested After Fatal Crash


One of North America’s most well-known farmers was arrested early Tuesday after allegedly leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Chris Soules, Iowa farmer and star of the TV show “The Bachelor” in 2015, was involved in a rear-end collision between a pickup truck and a tractor on Monday night in which the tractor driver died, according to Iowa State Patrol.

He was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
