So they had pulled over because his tire blew out. They exited the vehicle and stood on the shoulder. Another car driven by an intoxicated driver slammed into the car and them, killing Petara Cordero.

once shared a cell with a guy who was laughing about having his 6th or 7th dwi arrest. he couldn’t barely stand and he’d been driving, yet even after sobering up he was like, “well this will cost me a couple thousand bucks”, but with zero remorse he could’ve killed someone.

Stop defining women by their relationship to a man, I don’t care how famous he is. Petara Cordero’s death isn’t more or less important because of who her boyfriend is.
Not only does her name not make the cut, but they have room to include his name and HIS PROFESSION. Fuck that. pic.twitter.com/tICbsHcSig
