CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Cleveland police released body camera video Thursday showing the first moments after a deadly crash that killed the girlfriend of a Cleveland Browns player.

Petara Cordero, 26, was killed in a car crash on September 11 in Cleveland.

She was the girlfriend of Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith.

The video shows police and fire crews at the scene.

Smith and his girlfriend were in his 2019 Lamborghini on I-90.

Smith pulled over to the side of I-90 West around 2 a.m. after a tire blew on his vehicle.

Cordero got out of the vehicle and was killed by a passing car.

Smith was not injured and was not impaired, police said.
