The fatal crash occurred on Monday, April 24, 2017 at approximately 8:20pm.

"The Buchanan County Sheriff's Office received a 911 report of a motor vehicle accident in the 1000 blk of Slater Avenue north of Aurora involving a pickup truck and a tractor," the Buchanan County Sheriff's Office told Radar in a statement. "At this time, one fatality has been confirmed."

As KWWL reported this morning, the 35-year-old rear-ended a tractor with his Chevy pick-up truck, forcing the victim's vehicle to land in a ditch.

The Bachelor star doesn't have a good history behind the wheel.

As Radar exclusively reported, the reality star was found guilty of driving under the influence in 2006.

In 2001, he was found guilty of possessing alcohol underage twice, and driving with an open container of alcohol.

A year later, he was found guilty of fighting and leaving the scene of an accident.

Soules proposed to Whitney Bischoff in 2015. They split just months after he popped the question.
