Chris Soules is making his social media presence a little less known following his recent arrest early Tuesday morning.

According to police, Soules fled the scene of a car collision that occurred around 8:20 p.m. on Monday. The Iowa State Patrol crash report claims that Soules was driving a Chevy pickup truck when he allegedly rear-ended a John Deere tractor trailer. The person driving the tractor trailer, identified as Kenneth Moser, was taken in an ambulance to the hospital, where he died.
