The investigation into Chris Soules’ fatal crash is continuing. Police are not only waiting on blood test results, but are also looking for the car in which Soules left the scene of the deadly accident.

As Gossip Cop reported, Soules was arrested in Iowa early Tuesday, hours after he rear-ended his truck into a tractor driven by 66-year-old Kenny Mosher. The Monday night collision led both vehicles to end up in roadside ditches, and Mosher died as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash. After calling 911, Soules left the scene, driven away by a third party in another vehicle. Soules was taken into custody hours later, following a stand-off with cops at his home.

Now officials want to track down the getaway car as potential evidence in the case. Authorities also obtaining the results of Soules’ blood tests, but since the blood was taken so long after the accident, it may not accurately indicate whether “The Bachelor” star was intoxicated at the time of the crash. As we previously reported, alcohol was found in Soules’ crashed truck, and he was previously charged with DUI a little over 10 years ago. On Friday, however, a judge sealed the search warrants related to all of these matters so details of the investigation and any evidence for or against Soules won’t leak to the media.

The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant’s rep released a statement on Thursday, urging “members of the public [to] not prejudge this case.” The spokesperson noted neither Soules nor his new legal team would be commenting, but said “his attorneys are confident that once all the evidence is made public, it will show Soules acted reasonably and did everything in his power to provide aid to Mr. Mosher.”

“Soules and his family request that their privacy and the privacy of Mr. Mosher’s family is respected. Everyone in this close-knit farming community is mourning Mr. Mosher’s passing. Soules offers his sincere condolences to the Mosher family,” the rep added. Soules, who is currently facing a felony charge of leaving the scene of a fatal accident, is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday. He is currently free on a $10,000 bond, but additional charges could be filed. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates as appropriate.
