‘Bachelor’ star called 911 before allegedly fleeing scene | WPXI

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Former Bachelor Chris Soules called 911 to report his crash that killed a fellow Iowa farmer, seeking medical help for the man before authorities say he left the scene and holed up in his home for hours until his arrest.

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. He told the dispatcher that he didn’t know CPR, and he could be heard asking others who were there if they did. The audio then indicates that someone tried to perform CPR on the man, but it’s unclear whether it was Soules. Soules said the man had a pulse and had blood coming from his mouth.
