Sources believe Chris has been holed up in his parents’ home.

The reality star, 35, was involved in a car accident that killed a fellow farmer on Monday night. He was driving his white 2008 Chevrolet truck near Aurora, Iowa, when he crashed into a John Deere tractor, according to the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office.

Kenneth E. Mosher, 66, a local farmer, was behind the wheel. Mosher was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

Chris called 911 and as paramedics arrived he left the scene, and was picked up by someone in a truck. He was arrested at his home near Arlington nearly five hours later, according to police. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with a death, a class D felony. He posted a $10,000 bond Tuesday; his next court appearance is scheduled for May 2.

“My family and I are overwhelmed with this tragedy, but we are sticking together and we’ll get through it,” the 35-year-old Iowa native told In Touch exclusively. “Thank you for reaching out.”
