'Bachelor' Star in Court Today

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A judge will decide Monday whether or not to dismiss the case against Iowa Bachelor star Chris Soules.

Soules is charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

He's accused of crashing into the back of a tractor on April 24 near Aurora. Kenneth Mosher, 66, was driving that tractor and died at the scene.

Soules did call 911, but authorities say he left the scene before they arrived.

Prosecutors say he was required to stay at the scene. They say by leaving the scene of a crash, the former Bachelor TV star denied law enforcement the face-to-face interaction with all drivers involved immediately following the crash.

Soules argues the charge should be dismissed because he called 911, identified himself to dispatchers and performed CPR on Mosher before leaving.

His hearing is at 9 a.m. Monday in Buchanan County.
