IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) \u2014 Chris Soules, an Iowa farmer who starred on \"The Bachelor\" two years ago, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of causing a deadly accident and leaving the scene.

Soules, who was portrayed as a wholesome country boy looking for love on season 19 of the ABC reality show, was behind the wheel of a pickup truck that rear-ended a tractor in northern Iowa on Monday night, the Iowa State Patrol said.

The crash sent the tractor into a ditch on one side of the road and Soules' truck into a ditch on the other side, the patrol said. The tractor driver was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The patrol identified him as 66-year-old Kenneth Mosher, a farmer from Aurora, which is about 15 miles (24 kilometers) south of Soules' farm in Arlington and about 65 miles (105 kilometers) north of Iowa City.

Authorities said someone called 911 to report the crash, but they didn't release the identity of the caller or audio of the call. Investigators spoke to multiple witnesses and determined that Soules caused the crash and left the scene, according to a complaint, which doesn't name the witnesses.

Alcohol was found at the scene, and investigators are trying to determine whose it was, said Sheriff Bill Wolgram. Court records show that Soules has had some driving infractions in the past, including a 2006 conviction for operating while intoxicated.

Soules, 35, was arrested in Aurora early Tuesday, about five hours after the crash, and was booked into the Buchanan County Jail on a charge of leaving the scene of a fatal accident, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison. He was released around midday on $10,000 bond, and will be required to surrender his passport and wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet until his trial, jail officials said.

It wasn't immediately clear if Soules has a defense attorney. Chicago attorney David Lechner, who is representing Soules in a civil matter, said he knew nothing about the crash. In that case, Soules is suing Gree USA, the manufacturer of a dehumidifier that he blames for causing a fire that damaged his home last year.

Soules first drew national attention as a participant in \"The Bachelorette\" in 2014, when he tried to win the affections of star Andi Dorfman but was passed over. A fan favorite, ABC had him back as \"The Bachelor\" the following year. His appearance drew attention to farming life and some of the struggles facing rural Iowa. He proposed to Chicago fertility nurse Whitney Bischoff at the end of his season, but their relationship ended shortly after the show.

Soules has since served as a spokesman for various agricultural interests and worked in farm real estate and investing.

The crash comes as Gov. Terry Branstad and lawmakers have expressed alarm about a rising number of deaths on Iowa roadways caused by intoxicated and distracted drivers. Branstad last week signed laws allowing officers to pull over drivers for texting while driving, increasing the penalties for texting-related vehicular homicides, and creating a statewide sobriety and drug monitoring program for intoxicated drivers.

MANASSAS, Virginia (AP) \u2014 Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has stressed the need to help the children of military families transition into new schools as their parents change assignments.

DeVos chose Ashland Elementary School in Manassas, Virginia, to mark the Month of the Military Child. During Tuesday's tour of the school she read a book to children about a mother who serves in the military. She donned a pair of toy bifocals like those invented by Benjamin Franklin and watched students refurbish a computer.

DeVos' message is about the need to help military children adjust to new school environments when the family relocates.

One mother at the school, Lt. Colonel Rojan Robotham, has raised the issue of making childcare available and affordable for families. The Trump administration has proposed budget cuts for after-school programs.

LONDON (AP) \u2014 Drake was the world's most popular recording artist in 2016, as the growth of music streaming gave global music sales their biggest boost in 20 years.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry said Tuesday that Drake had the years' best-selling single, with \"One Dance,\" and the third best-selling album, \"Views.\"

Also in the top five were David Bowie, Coldplay, Adele and Justin Bieber.

The IFPI said revenue from recorded music rose 5.9 percent between 2015 and 2016, to $15.7 billion, the fastest rate of growth since the dawn of the digital age two decades ago.

In 2016 sales of digital music, including streaming and downloads, accounted for half of the total for the first time. Streaming revenue rose 60.4 percent, while revenue from downloads fell by 20.5 percent.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Scott Baio says he's \"heartbroken\" over Erin Moran's death and his suggestion that his former \"Happy Days\" and \"Joanie Loves Chachi\" co-star might have died of drugs or alcohol was a response to media reports.

Authorities in Indiana said Monday that Moran likely died from cancer at her home on Saturday at the age of 56.

Earlier in the day, Baio told New York's WABC radio that he was \"shocked, but not completely shocked\" about Moran's death, before saying that \"if you do drugs or drink, you're going to die.\"

\"She was just an insecure human being and fell into this world of drugs and alcohol,\" he said. He added that he didn't know if drugs or alcohol were the cause of her death.

Baio's comments drew a backlash on social media. He clarified in a Facebook post that he had heard reports that Moran died of a heroin overdose and the radio interview took place before authorities mentioned her cancer.

He called Moran his \"very first real girlfriend\" and defended himself as a \"compassionate person.\"

Baio joined the \"Happy Days\" cast in 1977 as Chachi Arcola. He starred alongside Moran's Joanie Cunningham in the \"Joanie Loves Chachi\" spinoff before it was cancelled in 1983 after two abbreviated seasons.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 The Disney Channel is giving a big push to its sequel for the \"Descendants\" movie in July, premiering it simultaneously on five television networks and online.

Disney said Tuesday that \"Descendants 2\" will air July 21 on ABC, the Disney Channel, Lifetime, Freeform and Disney XD, as well as on those networks' apps. The original \"Descendants,\" about the teenage sons and daughters of some famed Disney villains, ranked as the fifth most-watched cable TV movie when it came out two years ago.

Disney executive Gary Marsh said the passion for the movie is unlike anything they've seen since \"High School Musical.\" It has inspired spin-off books, a music video and other merchandise.

The movie stars Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Mitchell Hope, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart and Mitchell Hope.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 For some designers, Bridal Fashion Week meant a turn to modern yet classic dresses with plenty of options in sleeves, necklines and silhouettes.

Some highlights:

___

MONIQUE LHUILLIER

She had it all in stretch satin that hugged the body and full tulle skirts with ruffles and folds that fluttered down her runway in a rehearsal room at Carnegie Hall.

Some of Lhuillier's brides wore lacy tulle gloves with rings on top and others walked in webs of pearls that cascaded over their shoulders and halfway down their backs.

There was romantic drama, but enough to please just about every bride in whites with a touch of latte and cappuccino shades done in organza and floral embroidery, Chantilly lace and illusion effects.

Lhuillier showed little bolero jackets and a variety of necklines, from plunging to sweetheart. Some sleeves were caps, other lacy and long. She dropped some waists and offered plenty of long trains both embellished and left alone.

One sleeveless tulle A-line gown was embellished with flower petals. Another of her creations came in white silk adorned with Chantilly lace, with a sweetheart neck and a natural waist that led to a full ball gown.

\"For spring '18, you're going to see tradition, coming back to classic elegant designs,\" Lhuillier said in a backstage interview. \"I really wanted to embrace a tradition of a wedding.\"

___

INES DI SANTO

Never shy about going her own way, Di Santo went for simplicity this time around.

Ever influenced by her Italian and Latin roots, she showed classic looks paired with high, braided hair sculpture. She, too, stuck to the whites with a single, elegant pop of bright red that fell to a perfect squared off train.

She finished some backs with covered buttons and box-pleat trains. Floral embellishment was hand-painted on a lingerie-strap gown with a sweetheart neck and an A-line skirt. A halter ball gown with an illusion neck had intricate tiers of ruffles on the skirt and a cathedral-style train. Another halter came in the cut of a trumpet gown with a corseted bodice and an asymmetrical pleated skirt and an exaggerated bow at the back.

Plunging necklines were abundant, including one on a long-sleeve coat with bows worn with a slip dress that had a front slit.

\"We started very clean, then we go a little bit more with details but only where you need it. I wanted to be traditional in a modern way,\" she said backstage. \"The most important thing to remember is the elegance of a woman.\"

Her red look evoked a flamenco dancer, from her model's dark braided hair sculpted into a basket shape, accompanied by red flowers, to the sexy neckline that hugged the body before it erupted into dramatic pleats at the thigh, with a flourish of pleats at the back.

\"I went with red on the lips, I went with red on the dress. I love red,\" Di Santo said.

___

MARCHESA

Think of Castle Howard, a prominent brick-walled English garden, and you've got a sense of the Marchesa bride for spring.

Ruffle bows and flower detailing was shown on open-back gowns and dropped-waist bodices. Silver beaded threadwork and pearl embroidery were layered over Chantilly lace underlays and delicate illusion tulle.

Designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman relied on the English rose garden at Mottisfont for their lower-price Notte collection with floor-sweeping gowns in creamy ivory. Beading and threadwork atop tulle was reminiscent of blooming florals wrapped around the garden's wooden posts and vine-covered pergolas, according to the show's notes.

The two have loads of red carpet moments on the backs of celebrities, but brides are different.

\"People are, like, how is it when someone wears your gown at the Oscars,\" Craig said in an interview. \"What's really incredible to me is when someone shows me a picture of a bride who has chosen to wear Marchesa for their wedding day, who has entrusted us with that moment. It really makes us proud. We get sent photos on Instagram and I really treasure those.\"

The two also stuck mostly to white, with little black touches in belts and elsewhere.

\"We did feel that things are going a little more white, a little more ivory\" Chapman said. \" Still sheer and light feeling but less of the nude. We've seen that nudeness for a long time.\"

___

REEM ACRA

She celebrated her 20th year in business in style with a collection inspired by Tiffany jewels.

Acra showed her gowns at Tiffany & Co.'s flagship store on Fifth Avenue. Some models sauntered out of elevators to walk a winding path among the store's shelves in looks inspired by Tiffany's signature blue jewelry box. Acra spent time in the jewelry company's studio to sketch her dresses inspired by the Tiffany diamond and other gemstones and signature Tiffany designs.

Her finale look was strapless and white in satin with a full skirt. Attached were actual Tiffany pieces, from diamond drop earrings to dragonfly brooches. The jewels, she said, were returned to Tiffany.

Another nod to the iconic company came in a ball gown styled in Tiffany blue, embellished with glittery yellow gold, worn with a full veil with the same shade in accents. Acra incorporated the classic Tiffany bow design in encrusted jewels on a sleek, black sleeveless gown worn with long black gloves. It was one of several gowns in black for her Tiffany brides.

Flirty black bows adorned the fronts and waists of white looks. Strings of diamonds fell from the shoulder of one black gown that fell just below the knee.

Acra sculpted bodices to reflect intricate platinum metalwork in Tiffany jewelry and showed touches of the blush tones found in the gemstones morganite and kunzite for a touch of color among the traditional whites and blacks.

\"Tiffany is a luxury stamp of quality, of fashion, of being on top of the game,\" Acra said of her moment with the company. \"We understand each other. For brides, their moment is something that lasts forever, just like a Tiffany diamond.\"
