NFL Player Chris Smith's Girlfriend Petara Cordero Killed in Front of Him in Tragic Accident

Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith’s girlfriend, Petara Cordero, sadly passed away after a tragic accident.

Chris, 27, and Petara, 26, were pulled over on the side of I-90 West in Cleveland, Ohio after a tire problem in his car on Wednesday (September 11).

After exiting the car, Petara was struck by another car and killed in front of Chris. Chris was uninjured.

To make this story even more tragic, Chris and Petara just welcomed a daughter, Haven Harris Smith, four weeks ago.

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

Our thoughts are with Chris and his daughter, as well as Petara‘s loved ones during this time.
