BOSTON (CBS) — The Massachusetts Avenue bridge connecting Boston and Cambridge was closed for approximately two hours Wednesday evening after a deadly head-on crash.

It happened on the Boston side of the bridge just before 6 p.m.

Police say 58-year-old Cheryl A. Anderson-Young of Beverly was driving a Lexus from Cambridge to Boston when she crossed the center line and hit a taxi cab coming the opposite direction.

The driver was taken to Beth Israel with serious injuries. Her passenger, 79-year-old Christina Anderson of Beverly, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The taxi driver, Ibrahim Nabile, 46, of Malden, was taken to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries.

    The two most dangerous stretches of road in the Country are the Mass Ave Bridge and The Jamaicaway. I hold my breath and constantly look for an escape route when I’m operating on either. The problem with the Mass Ave is that there are so few options except keep to the far right and constantly watch every Vehicle coming from the other direction.
