The Bachelor's Chris Soules Makes First Appearance in 2 Years Following Deadly Car Crash

Chris Soules walks the red carpet while attending 102.7 KIIS FM’s 2019 Jingle Ball held at The Forum on Friday night (December 6) in Los Angeles.

This marks the 38-year-old former The Bachelor star’s first public appearance in two years following his involvement in a deadly car crash.

Chris has been laying low since April 2017, when he was arrested for allegedly fleeing the scene of a car collision before police officers arrived. He allegedly was driving a pickup truck and rear-ended a tractor-trailer. The driver of the tractor-trailer died. Chris was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and was sentenced to two years probation.

During his appearance at Jingle Ball, Chris told ET that he’s not “really returning to the spotlight,” but just at the event to enjoy a fun evening with friends. Other Bachelor Nation stars in attendance included Hannah Brown, Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti, Taylor Nolan, and Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes.

“I’m here for a really great concert,” Chris added. “I’m here in L.A. and kind of just living the dream a little bit.”

In regards to the past couple years, Chris said, “It has been tough but it makes you appreciate the people around you, family, friends — and how hard things can get, you just have to press on.”
