Man charged in accident that killed MSP trooper releases statement

The suspect charged with the death of a Michigan State trooper has broken his silence.

Raymond Warren, Jr. was arraigned Friday in the death of Chad Wolf on Aug. 28.  Warren, 69, was charged with reckless driving causing death and failure to stop at an accident scene resulting in death.

In a statement released from his attorney, Warren encouraged the public to continue its generosity,

"Michigan State Police Trooper Chad Wolf tragically passed away on August 28, 2015. Our thoughts and prayers have been with Chad Wolf, his family and friends every day since this tragedy.

My family and I appreciate all of those who have reached out to Chad Wolf's family and to my family. We ask that you please continue to donate to the GoFundMe page that has been set up for the Chad Wolf family.”

The message was signed, “Charles Warren and family.”

Warren was said to be unaware he had hit Wolf, 38, a married father of four.

A GoFundMe account in Wolf's name has raised more than $187,000 with donations from 2,441 people. If you would like to donate, CLICK HERE.

The accident happened on Dixie Highway in Springfield Township when Warren made an abrupt lane change. He hit Wolf on his motorcycle and dragged him underneath the trailer. Warren eventually pulled off on I-75 in Holly. 

Wolf's funeral was held Sept. 1 at Fenton High School and attracted about 3,500 people to the service.
