Playing EXCLUSIVE: Chris Soules' Former 'DWTS' Partner Witney Carson Says She Hasn't Spoken to Him Since Fatal Car Crash

Whitney Carson hasn't spoken to her former Dancing With the Stars partner, Chris Soules, since his tragic car crash on Monday.

Soules made headlines earlier this week for allegedly fleeing the scene after a fatal car crash. The former Bachelor rear-ended Kenneth Mosher's tractor in his 2008 Chevrolet Silverado truck, called 911 to report the incident, and then allegedly fled the scene. He was later arrested and charged with Leaving the Scene of a Fatality Motor Vehicle Accident (Class D Felony).

ET's Brice Sander caught up with the 23-year-old dancer on the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she revealed that she hasn't spoken with Soules, but didn't shy away from speaking about her current season of Dancing With the Stars, with Chris Kattan.

"I did have a feeling [we were going to be eliminated first], but at the same time, you cant really plan for it," Carson said. "So it’s weird. I’ve never been kicked off, like, the first week. That’s really weird for me, so I’m having fun just doing the opening numbers and just like, hanging out with everybody and just taking it easy this season."

For Carson, however, Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's recent elimination was far more shocking.

"That was the biggest surprise, because Heather is such an amazing dancer," she shared. "I felt like she didn’t reach her potential yet. So I was really sad to see her go."

"I think the whole thing with Maks being out of the competition definitely hindered her a little bit," she added. "So I wish I would have seen her around a little bit more."
