Five people — including three newborn babies — were stabbed at an overnight day care center inside a New York City home early Friday, and a woman who had slashed her wrist and was found in the basement was taken into custody, police said. The victims were listed in critical but stable condition.

An 18-year-old woman died in a crash Saturday afternoon in northwest suburban Elgin.

Death investigators responded about 2:35 p.m. to the fatal crash at the intersection of Randall and Hopps roads, according to the Kane County Coroner’s Office.

Consuelo Pina, of Elgin, had been driving in the area when she was involved in a “motor vehicle mishap” and was killed, the coroner’s office said.

Preliminary results from an autopsy conducted Monday found she died from multiple injuries, the coroner’s office said. Toxicology samples were collected during the autopsy and sent to a forensic laboratory.
