According to information provided by Jeanette DeWulf, Charlene Valletta, 24, of St. Clair Shores and formerly of Clare and Farwell, died September 15 from injuries suffered in a September 3 motorcycle accident.
Information from police published in last week’s front page article reported the incident happened just after midnight, that the accident was still under investigation and that they did not know if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
We have since learned that the accident happened around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, September 3. Charlene Valletta was a passenger on the motorcycle which was driven by a Warren man who lost control while exiting the freeway and crashed into a barricade. The driver also died as a result of the crash. Valetta was taken to an area hospital and died there on September 15. No drugs or alcohol were found to be a factor in the accident, DeWulf said.
