Prominent firm to defend 'Bachelor' star in Iowa crash case

From the initial accident to the 911 call to the former Bachelor star's arrest, ET's breaking down everything we know so far about what happened.

Soules told the dispatcher that he "rear-ended a guy on a tractor" with his pickup truck Monday night on a road near the northern Iowa town of Aurora, according to a recording of the call released Wednesday.

Former "Bachelor" Chris Soules has hired a high-profile law firm to defend him after he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident that killed another Iowa farmer. He is now free on a $10,000 bond and was uninjured in the accident. News, Soules can be heard telling the operator, "There's no address". As we previously reported, Chris called 911 and admitted to crashing his truck into the back of a tractor, sending both vehicles and the other victim into a ditch.

Soules, who starred on ABC's "The Bachelor" two years ago, said the man had been thrown into a ditch, wasn't conscious, and didn't appear to be breathing.

Soules identified himself on the call, which lasted almost six minutes, and sounded frantic.

Soules said they did and then asked, "Can I call you back really quick?" And when the operator asked him, "Chris, do you know how to do CPR?"

Soules is an Arlington native who appeared on "The Bachelorette" in 2014.

Meanwhile, his legal team claims that they are concerned Soules will not get a fair trial.

But is it possible that the people who picked Soules up could face charges?

He was released on Tuesday, April 25, after posting a $10,000 bail.

"I feel a pulse, yeah, he's got a pulse", Soules stated. He was taken after the crash by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead.

Officers have searched for him and he was in no point of cooperating with the law enforcers with the investigation.

Police have Chris Soules' phone and are looking into whether or not he was texting, talking on the phone or posting to social media at the time of his auto crash, according to TMZ.

Approximately five hours after fleeing the scene, Soules is arrested. "He was devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher, the other person in the accident, passed away", a statement via his rep, Stan Rosenfield, read.

"Chris has a location-monitoring device on his leg and had to surrender his passport", says the insider. Soules allegedly fled before law enforcement arrived and didn't return to the scene. Regardless, we're sure the victim (Kenneth Mosher)'s family would like some answers about what exactly caused this fatal crash.
