Whitney Bischoff is reacting to ex-fiancé Chris Soules being arrested on Tuesday for allegedly leaving the scene of a fatal accident. As Gossip Cop reported, a 66-year-old man died in the crash.

Soules, driving a truck on a rural Iowa road, allegedly rear-ended a fellow farmer, Kenny Mosher, who was steering a tractor. The impact of the collision sent Mosher and his vehicle into a ditch, killing him. Soules was arrested at his home after fleeing the scene, but is now out of custody on $10,000 bond.

In response to the shocking tragedy, Bischoff tells People, “This is a very sad situation. I’m keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers, especially the victim and his family.” She did not specifically mention Soules, whom she was previously set to wed, in her brief remarks. For his part, a rep for “The Bachelor” star said in a statement that Soules is “devastated.”

As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Soules and Bischoff called off their “Bachelor” engagement in May 2015. Though they had been engaged since the previous November, the split came only two months after the reality show’s March finale. The former couple stayed together through Soules’ stint on “Dancing with the Stars” that spring, but broke up after his elimination.

Last summer, Bischoff revealed she was engaged again, although she and fiancé Ricky Angel have yet to tie the knot. Soules has not seriously dated anyone, at least publicly, since his relationship with Bischoff ended nearly two years ago. Now he faces an uncertain future as this tragic ordeal unfolds.
