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.
