Cordero Was Killed by a Driver Who Admitted to “Drinking”
The Cleveland Browns released an official statement revealing that Chris Smith’s girlfriend was killed in a car accident on I-90 West in Cleveland on the morning of September 11.
According to reports, Cordero was a passenger in the Lamborghini that Smith was driving. A tire blowout caused the vehicle to hit the median wall.
The couple was apparently unharmed by the initial accident. Cordero had exited the car and was standing on the road’s shoulder when a car struck the passenger side of the Lamborghini and hit Cordero.
Cordero was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. Smith was not injured or impaired.
The driver of the other vehicle is a 47-year-old woman who admitted she was drinking at the time of the accident. Charges haven’t been filed while a toxicology report is pending.
“Words cannot describe the sorrow we feel for Chris following the loss of his girlfriend, Petara,” said Dee and Jimmy Haslam, co-owners of the Browns. “Our entire organization mourns with Chris, his family, and the Cordero family. We will do everything possible to offer them our support, comfort and any resources in this most difficult time.”
