Bachelor alum Chris Soules may be known best as a reality television star, but it’s his own reality at the moment that finds him in deep, deep water.

According to People magazine, Soules and his parents have reportedly agreed to pay $2.5 million dollars to the family of a man who died following an accident with the once swinging single. The settlement comes as a result of a civil lawsuit filed in January 2019 against Soules for wrongful death. As some may recall, Soules was involved in an accident involving his truck and a tractor driven by Kenneth Mosher back in April of 2017.

The war veteran lost his life as a result of the crash.

What made the whole situation even more sad was the fact that, after calling 911 and rendering aid, Soules left the scene of the accident that fateful night before authorities arrived. In the years following the accident, Soules spent much time in court, eventually entering a conditional guilty plea.

And while Soules looks to have returned to life as normal on his farm, the repercussions of his actions always seem to be evident within the comments on his various social media channels.

“Hey, remember when you killed a guy,” one Instagram follower wrote on his post April 15.

“Everybody saying prayers for him as if he didn’t literally kill somebody and flee the scene,” another follower wrote. “You people need morals in your life.”
