The girlfriend of Cleveland Browns player Chris Smith was killed in a car accident Wednesday morning, CNN reports. Petara Cordero and Smith were in the NFL player’s 2019 Lamborghini when they pulled over on a Cleveland highway early Wednesday morning after a tire blew.
According to Cleveland police, Cordero got out of the vehicle and was hit shortly after by a woman driving a Mazda. The 26-year-old was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police say the driver of the Mazda admitted to drinking before driving.
The incident is under investigation and no charges have yet been filed. Cordero reportedly gave birth to her and Smith’s daughter just four weeks ago.
