BOSTON (WHDH) -

There are new details in Monday's deadly crash on the Zakim Bridge.

Police said a taxi driver killed in the fiery crash had stopped because she had a flat tire. A tractor trailer smashed into her car, causing both vehicles to burst into flames.

Investigators said other cars changed lanes to avoid the taxi. They're looking into why the truck driver didn't do the same.
