According to reports, the incident happened on Wednesday morning. Cordero and Smith were pulled over to the side of the highway after Smith’s vehicle had a tire malfunction, which resulted in a one-car accident as the vehicle entered a spin and ultimately hit the median, according to the team’s statement. After exiting the car without significant injuries, Cordero was struck by an oncoming vehicle. She was taken to Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Cordero’s death comes just weeks after she and Smith welcomed daughter Haven Harris Smith. She was just 26 years old.

As of right now, a toxicology report for the driver of the Mazda is pending. Police say that Smith was uninjured and not impaired.

“Words cannot describe the sorrow we feel for Chris following the loss of his girlfriend, Petara,” team owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said in a statement. “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.”

The Browns will have counselors on site throughout the week to provide emotional support for players and staff.

Hollywood Unlocked sends our deepest condolences to Smith and Cordero’s family.
