Chris Soules, Parents to Pay $2.5M in Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Fatal Crash Former Bachelor star Chris Soules and his parents, Gary and Linda Soules, were ordered to pay $2.5 million in a wrongful death lawsuit settlement following his April 2017 fatal car accident. Kenneth Mosher, 66, died after the reality star’s car rear-ended the farmer’s tractor two years ago in Aurora, Iowa.
