'Bachelor' star called 911 before allegedly fleeing scene

On Tuesday, the Buchanan County Sheriff's Office confirmed to Bustle that Chris Soules was arrested and charged for allegedly fleeing the scene of a fatal auto crash, which took place on Monday, April 24 near Aurora, Iowa.

According to a news release, just after 8 p.m. on Monday, the sheriff's office received a 911 call about a pickup truck that had collided with a tractor, sending both vehicles into a roadside ditch.

"He's not conscious", Soules said.

"Anybody know how to do CPR?" the former reality star can be heard asking repeatedly, before describing to the dispatcher that Mosher is bleeding from the mouth and has a faint pulse.

Soules, 35, was driving his truck about 15 miles from his Arlington, Iowa, home when he rear-ended a John Deere tractor driven by 66-year-old farmer, Kenneth Mosher.

As the call continued, Soules said the tractor isn't on top of Mosher.

An Iowa State Patrol official tells ET that Soules allegedly left the scene after the ambulance came.

On Tuesday, Soules was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal auto accident and was released from jail on a $10,000 bond later that day.

Soules, uninjured, allegedly left the scene of the accident prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

Prosecutors say Soules rear-ended a tractor just north of Aurora Monday evening. His spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, issued a statement saying Soules "was devastated" to learn that Mosher died.

As for the family and relatives of the victim Kenneth Mosher, one of them have stepped up for Chris Soules and even defended him. Sources told TMZ that Soules submitted to a blood test, but also said that the test may not be effective, given the time lapse. Soules made a social media post Monday, just a couple hours before the crash, showing him working in a farm field.

While several of Soules' violations were speeding tickets, a few have involved illegal drinking and reckless driving. A preliminary hearing is set for May 2.

Yes. The Buchanan County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation into the cause of the accident, and further charges may be pending.

Court documents revealed alcoholic beverages and a container were found at the scene.

If alcohol was involved, is it possible Soules could be charged with Operating While Intoxicated (OWI)?
