The Preceding Car Accident
The accident occurred while Smith was driving his Lamborghini along I-90 West in Cleveland with Cordero when his tire burst, causing his vehicle to spin and hit a median.
While they did not obtain injuries from that accident, something surprising and tragic happened.
The driver of the other car, Tracy McIvor, revealed she had something to drink before driving and is ready to face charges.

Rest in Peace, Petara.
