Chris Soules Fled The Scene Of A Car Crash Back In 2002
The former ‘Bachelor’ left the scene of a deadly accident earlier this week.
In a police report obtained from the Cedar Falls Police Department, by Radar, the 35-year-old was busted for leaving the scene of property damage and failure to stop at a stop sign on February 22, 2002.
“[Chris’ vehicle] immediately left the scene of the accident and never attempted to make contact with or check on the condition of the driver,” the police report read. “[Chris] was contacted within hours after the accident and admitted to driving vehicle one and striking vehicle two.”
However, Chris denied passing the stop sign, and instead blamed frost on his windows for not seeing the vehicle.
“Soules stated he was scared and did not want to hurt his insurance so he left the scene,” the report continued.
Chris ultimately pled guilty to the charges and was ordered to pay $155 in fines.
As OK! readers know, Chris was arrested on April 24 after his truck slammed into a tractor, killing victim Kenneth Mosher.
While Chris called 911 and performed CPR on the victim, he left the scene of the crime, leaving Kenneth in a ditch, before police officers and medical assistance arrived.
He and his vehicle were later found at a house, however, the 35-year-old allegedly refused to leave until officers obtained a search warrant several hours later.
Court documents later revealed that alcoholic beverages and a container were found at the scene.
