Chris Soules, a former star of ABC’s “The Bachelor” who was arrested following a fatal collision Monday night in Iowa, called 911 from the scene of the crash before leaving the scene, USA Today reports. Audio of the 911 call, which was released today, can be heard by clicking here.
“The female dispatcher asked who is injured and Soules replied ‘the man on the tractor.’ The dispatcher asked if the tractor was in the ditch and if the man was thrown into the ditch, and Soules said yes,” USA Today reports.
The recording was released by the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office. On it, Soules identifies himself and says the man in the ditch is not conscious.
“The tractor driver was identified Tuesday as Kenneth E. Mosher, 66,” the report notes. “He lived on his family farm near the crash site. He was taken after the crash by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead. He had been a resident of Aurora, a town of fewer than 200 people, for much of his life.”
Soules can be heard asking the dispatcher: “You guys are on your way?”
“The recording ends with Soules asking the dispatcher if he can call her back ‘really quick,'” USA Today notes.
As we reported Tuesday, Soules was later arrested. He has reportedly been hit with a felony charge of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
