The girlfriend of Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith was hit by a car on the side of a highway after Smith pulled over to fix a flat tire on his Lamborghini.

Petara Cordero, 26, died on Wednesday - just two weeks after giving birth to the couple's first child, a baby girl.

Smith and Cordero were involved in a minor car crash after a flat tire caused the Lambo to spin out of control early Wednesday morning.

Smith pulled over to fix the flat tire, and Cordero stepped out of the vehicle on the side of the road.

She was struck and killed by another car after she walked into the opposite lane from the median and into oncoming traffic on the I-90 West in Cleveland, according to the Daily Mail UK.

Police say the driver, a 47-year-old woman driving a Mazda in oncoming traffic, admitted she had been drinking before she hit Cordero.

Cordero was taken to Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on Wednesday.

She and Smith recently celebrated the birth of their daughter, Haven Harris Smith, just two weeks ago.

Cleveland police said no charges have been filed against the driver and toxicology reports are pending.

    Damn. This is so sad.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Exactly...life in prison! Period!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    From what I've read, it's not that she walked into oncoming traffic...
    She stepped out of the passenger-side door after the car had pulled over at the median. And that's when she was hit by the Mazda coming from the opposite direction. I'd say it's definitely the drunk driver's fault.

  • Nita Pie

    Yea if he got out to change the tire she should've stayed in the car, dang RIP

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She was struck and killed by another car after she walked into the opposite lane from the median and into oncoming traffic on the I-90 West in Cleveland, according to the Daily Mail UK.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I understand that the driver was drinking prior to the accident. However, am I reading this correctly? Why did she get out of the car and cross the street in the middle of traffic? Was she drunk?

    And before someone says it doesn't matter...blah blah blah... it's called contributory/comparative negligence.

  • bemetoo

    That’s so fawk up.. the lady hasn’t been charged... but what if this was a set up to not pay child support ???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Seriously? So...he had his tire blown out, pulled over to the side of the road, told the girlfriend to step out of the car, and paid this drunk woman to drive by at just the right moment so she could hit his baby's mother and kill her? ? I'm gonna say highly, highly unlikely.

  • sandi

    Visions of Ray "what's his name". Literally can't think of the guy's name. Let's hope not. These guys know the deal. If you don't want children then be cautious. Hate it for them.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Yeah I am just now reading she was in oncoming traffic

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    a young life as been taken and a child is left without it's mother. May she rest in love. But Blaque, i read it a few times as well to gain a visual understanding as to why she would not have simply stayed in the car.

  • NeverSurprised

    This is tragic. A new mother. So sad. May her soul find peace?

    And if distracted or intoxicated driving played a role, I hope the offender is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  • hottlanta

    Any pictures of folks in handcuffs going to jail

  • TheOwley

    Nothing less that vehicular homicide and DUI. I don't know how many years that is.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    So is this a standard hwy with 4 lanes? Am i understanding the car was in the fast lane, therefore she stepped out of the passenger side door, which was on the side of incoming traffic?

  • TheOwley

    RIP. I'm sure family will rally around him and his newborn. Awful situation.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Drunk driving laws are way too lenient. I think for a first offense they should suspend the person's license for a year and give them 6 months in jail. Second offense should be at least a 5 year suspension + jail time, and permanently revoke their license for the 3rd offense.
    Once people start losing their license quickly for DUI, you'd see a lot more people calling cabs and Uber, instead of taking a chance drinking & driving.

  • Chapter29Chick

    If the driver admitted to drinking and driving that should have wasted no time throwing her in jail for killing this young mother. Hope she rests in peace and her boyfriend doesn’t replace her tomorrow. Baby ? would be so confused like now who is this heux u got up in here.?

  • NeverSurprised

    This happened not far from the stretch of I-90 near my condo in Bratenahl. Here is what the local press said happened:

    'Smith and Cordero were heading west on I-90 near the West 140th Street exit ramp in his 2019 Lamborghini. Smith told police that a tire on his vehicle blew out, which caused the vehicle to veer left and strike the center median wall. Smith and Petara exited the vehicle and were standing on the north shoulder of I-90 West.

    A short time later, the woman in a 2017 Mazda 3 approached the disabled Lamborghini. The Mazda veered to the right side of it, striking the open passenger side doors and then Cordero.'

    They have reported nothing about her attempting to cross the highway.

    That's what it seems like. I guess that's the only scenario that would make sense.

  • Oh Tommie

    You admit to driving under the influence after killing someone and no charges are filed yet? Sounds about white. I’m assuming they have to wait for the toxicology report...then again... why if the lady already admitted that she was drinking prior to? Make it make sense

  • Carrington

    People don't understand that that drank and the wheel can change the rest of your life - and end someone else's. SMH
    She killed this lady and, if she has children herself, she's going to jail. She will lose her job, her home, her freedom, her children - EVERYTHING... because you were drunk.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. I'm sure he'll probably find somebody new eventually, but it would look kinda bad if he does that too soon. I'd say give it at least 2 years. Just focus on being a father for now.

    This is the problem with companies "saving money" by outsourcing work that used to be done by whole departments. Remember when payroll was kept in-house? I was reading another story about anothe payroll cloud company getting hacked to the tune of thousands of dollars.

  • Renee26

    I wondered if the girl stumbled herself... Cause who walks into highway traffic on purpose? Typically one would use caution when getting out in a dangerous situation like that.

    Ironically I have a cousin who was hit by a semi when she tried to beat it running across the highway.

  • TheWildChild

    That's what I read too? and at 2am, one must be rather cautious anyway. I thought once he veered into the median, she stepped out of the car not realizing she was stepping in the path of an oncoming car. ?????

    Thanks. So this is simply a case of a drunk driver doing what drunk drivers do.

    Prayers for her family.

  • Kimberly King

    Drunk driving is disgusting. Now this child will never get to experience her mother's love. I hope the father can pull it together and raise the child well. Hopefully he has women in his family who can step in. They need to charge that woman immediately.

  • Nunya Business

    The lady admitted she had been drinking but she hasn't been charged yet because even if you've been drinking your blood alcohol level may be below the limit. She obviously knew they were going to check her blood alcohol level so she would have been stupid to say she hadn't been drinking. If she was above the limit I'm guessing she'll be charged, but maybe not if the gf was standing in the middle of the road. She could have been hit by anyone drinking or not if she was indeed in the road. If the driver wasn't over the legal limit and the gf was standing in the road I'm not sure if she can be charged with anything.

  • Renee26

    Might have been a glass of wine or something that would put her below the legal limit.That's what I'm guessing

    She did just like most people who are in the passenger seat when an accident or a flat tire happens, she merely got out of the car prolly thinking she was just gonna wait on AAA or a tow truck or something, she just ended up getting hit by a person that had been drinking and wasn’t paying attention to what she was doing while she was driving.

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Relax. No one said the lady who hit her was drunk. She admitted to having a drink that night that's it. Having a drink dont make you drunk. She already know they are going to test her blood levels. If she was pissy drunk she would not have been able to leave the scene. She was not placed under arrest either. Chris and his woman might have been drinking also it was 2am. I feel bad for her lossing her life. Her man was handling the situation he should have instructed her to stay in the car.

    Best way to handle this would have been to call AAA or whatever type of roadside-assistance you have, and stay in the vehicle till help arrives.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm guessing that if the results come back under the legal limit of 0.08, she won't be considered legally drunk but they'll probably be able to charge her with driving while impaired.
    But if they get a result over that, especially if it's a lot higher than 0.08, they can hit her with more serious charges, like vehicular homicide or something like that.

    Can people PLEASE stop repeating the lie about this woman walking into traffic. According to the local paper of record, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, this is what happened:

    "Smith and Cordero were heading west on I-90 near the West 140th Street exit ramp in his 2019 Lamborghini. Smith told police that a tire on his vehicle blew out, which caused the vehicle to veer left and strike the center median wall. Smith and Petara exited the vehicle and were standing on the north shoulder of I-90 West.

    I wish she would have been a wife first instead of a girlfriend with a baby.
    RIP

  • Nunya Business

    She admitted to drinking because she knew they'd check her blood alcohol level but just because she's been drinking it doesn't mean she tested above the legal limit which is why she hasn't been charged yet. If her test comes back below the limit then all they can say is that it was an accident the same way it would have been an accident if the person had not been drinking at all. There may be some reckless endangerment charge but someone who wasn't drinking could get that kind of charge also in this kind of situation. Also, if Sandra's write up is correct it stated that the gf was standing in the road. Anyone could have hit her, drinking or not.

    I wish people with insensitive, judgmental opinions regarding an instant
    tragedy would keep their asinine comments to themselves.

  • Daffanyrose

    Everybody don’t wanna get married

  • Wreckognize Game

    Wow, I guess you would have more sympathy for her if she were a wife but she still would be gone. ?

  • hottlanta

    Wasnt wendy williams a wife. Oops my bad she was the side chick.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Tragic. That's why I firmly believe (in the case of a simple flat tire) if you can drive off of the highway/freeway, do that before deciding to fix a flat. I'd rather spend $400 to fix a damaged rim than get hit by the increasing number of distracted drivers. ?? Sadly in this case, the vehicle may have been undrivable.

  • yvette46

    Damn shame!! Rip..

  • Dowoop

    Well u would be the first report I would read of her crashing the car off the road... Everywhere else I read about this she was still on the road when she hit her.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I am sew glad that the newborn wasn’t with them....such a tragedy RIP

  • Alextra Ballard

    Even if she was his wife....she probably would’ve still gotten out of the car.... exact same results

  • Hazel

    First, if she had her door open such that it obstructed the road, AND she was hit, then she did 'walk' into traffic. Sad.

  • Lovely1

    Oh no!

  • rockstar2142

    Girl that’s the least of the worries. A lil girl will have to grow up without her mom & he just lost his partner. Smh... at y’all folks I just can’t.

  • WhoKnew

    You forgot he cries when he talks. Shaky ass voice.

  • LoveChild

    Agreed. But you can’t talk about marriage with these birds. They’re so used to baby mama baby daddy culture it’s normal to them

  • dontgetblocked

    Stay in the vehicle please. This is so sad. I really think women should limit leaving the house when they have infants. Just chill with the baby and let your body heal. So many working mothers would love to do this.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well in Ms.Cordero case I assume she had the luxury of staying home....but for most momz they don’t.....I know some wimmen that went byke tew work less than a month after birth...not becuz they wanted tew they had tew...as yew stated most mothers would have loved ? tew be in her shoes.

  • Truth ???

    So marriage was your biggest accomplishment in life I see.

  • Black Dynomiiiite!!!

    Wow!

    lmaooooo this recap tho ???

  • lovelygamour

    I just said a pray for him.

    I was lamenting my life because I saw a possum under my front house bush. still upset but its not the end of the world cause,

    what chris smith just went through could break a person. you have to wonder was Codera drinking as well. to attempt to cross the highway was brave. if she was drinking then smith will really feel guilty even though its not his fault.

    not saying her just giving birth is a factor but giving birth puts your body in a state of life and death. your balance is off and brain is still foggy. cause naturally you are more focus on your baby. so if you are pregnant/new mom you need to double think everything and make adjustment for your new body.

  • NeverSurprised

    Reading is fundamental.

    How did she 'WALK' into traffic if she was STANDING by the car. Walking and standing still are two seperate and distinct actions.

    The fact that the door was open in no way equates to her "walking into oncoming traffic". The drunk driver's car "VEERED" over to her.

    Yes, she and Chris would have been safer had they stayed inside the vehicle. But to report that this young woman was hit because she was walking to oncoming traffic is simply irresponsible and makes people question HER sobriety, when it was solely the other driver who was under the iIfluence and at fault.

  • Guess Who

    That is just awful.

  • Black Dynomiiiite!!!

    I understood that you were saying the shooter was white

  • DREAM KARDASHIANS STROLLER

    Damn that poor baby girl smh?

  • MythCalledLove

    I just wanna say these are the new hospital gowns. thought mine had Velcro to keep it close but I could hv saw floating unicorns I was scared and about to go under anesthesia But they are the new print

  • Jussjess25

    How would that have changed anything?

  • Eileen

    There are some folks on this site that got into their feelings when I said I wish she were a wife instead of a girlfriend.
    I do not know what she was thinking or where she was going that day but my hubbie was not driving me anywhere with a two week old baby at home because he would insist I be home and I would have submitted to his concerns. When men are married there is a tendency to utilize critical thinking some moreso than others who are baby daddies. My hubbie was old school . Also the legalities of taking possession of her body, custody of the baby, all of this is up for grabs. Her family could sue him for wrongful death by using poor judgement in having her in the car now do you understand why I say I wish she were a wife. There is a difference legally.

  • Eileen

    More husbands should get second jobs like back in the day so these mothers can just chill and be home at least the first year.

  • Eileen

    Sad but true and tragic for our community as a whole.
    Our kids are aspiring to be Niki's cardi b and puffy

  • Eileen

    Nope don't think so read my latest comment

  • Eileen

    If you have a baby you should!
    Give your womb to the man that wants to legally own it. Meaning you my wife not my baby mama

  • Kimocha

    This is so sad and really doesn't make any sense why she would walk onto the opposite lane from the median and into oncoming traffic... I am so lost and confused, and feel so sorry for her brand new baby girl!... May she RIP!

  • Daffanyrose

    Legally owning it doesn’t mean anything as long as he put his name on the birth certificate.

  • Eileen

    Foolish girl you don't get it a name on the birth certificate ony certifies him as the father it has nothing to do with the child's mother. Her parents or even a sibling can claim her body. Her family can and probably should get custody of the baby why are you arguing this bs. Would you rather be married or just another foolish statistical black baby mama in the black community?

  • Eileen

    Yall chick's on this site are just plain dumb. Sadly in the black community being a single mother is more important than marrying first!

  • Eileen

    It worked three kids college educated no baby mama's no tattoos no pierced ears no saggy pants no swinging on the pole no screwing somebody else husband no sashaying for my son or tweaking for my daughters etc etc all because I choose the safety of marriage

  • Kiera

    Right. After I gave birth my husband went to the store for me and everything for at least a month.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    what do you need?

  • free

    that whole first year was a blur to me! i was "existing" and that was pretty much it! my mom stayed with us for the first two weeks.

  • free

    they STAY getting hit in atlanta. remember the brother/sister duo who got hit changing a tire and they were in the striped area!

  • free

    yeah, i think they were sticking out into the road. changing a tire in the CENTER is damn near impossible. the fact that they haven't put a charge on yet makes me wonder.

  • free

    death hours!!!!

  • lovelygamour

    good thing you recognized. we went through this with my sister. she made a bunch of life altering decisions between her last trimester and until my nephew was 1. my mother told her to stop but she just changed everything and messed up her life. like she left no stone unturned.

  • Truth ???

    So you couldn't have raised children like that and accomplished those things without a man? Got it!

  • Eileen

    Good I'm glad you got it because the answer is right I could have done it and still look as hot as I do without the stress high blood pressure depression etc that goes with raising kids with no father especially a boy.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Yes?????

  • Hazel

    Reading IS fundamental. And you're fundamentally stupid.

  • Truth ???

    What kind of boys are you raising where you think all of that comes with raising them?

  • Eileen

    Nimcompoop give it rest .
    I am so Freaking done with the dumb women who put the cart before the horse
    Get married before you have babies! Period!

  • Truth ???

    Poor thing had to resort to name calling just to try to make a valid point but yet you claim you're happily married...lol..what a joke. Angry much. ? lol!

  • Maxima

    flat tire with a lambo? It could happen, but it sounds like this man needed to take better care of his big toys, his baby mama's life depended on it
