A 78-year-old woman died Tuesday night in a crash on Chicago’s Northwest Side that injured six others, including children.

The accident happened around 7:52 p.m. in the 3400 block of West Peterson Avenue.

According to police, a 46-year-old man was driving east on Peterson Avenue with five passengers when his vehicle was struck in the intersection by an 18-year-old in a sedan.

The 78-year-old passenger was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. She has been identified as Zainab Suboh.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital in fair condition, but a 36-year-old woman and an 81-year-old man were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Two children, a three-year-old boy and a seven-year-old girl, were transported in fair condition to Lurie Children’s Hospital.

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing, according to police.

According to a relative of some of the victims, the family was traveling from Indiana to visit other family members for dinner.

The crash is being investigated by the Chicago Police Major Accidents Unit.

A CFD firefighter’s wife and three children were critically injured in a Montclare fire.

A house fire on Chicago’s Northwest Side on Tuesday night critically injured the wife and three children of an on-duty Chicago firefighter.

The fire broke out shortly after 9 p.m. in the 2500 block of North Rutherford Avenue, according to Chicago police.

Firefighters rescued a 34-year-old woman, two young girls, ages 2 and 7, and a 7-year-old boy who had all been exposed to smoke.

Stroger Hospital received an adult and two children.

According to Chicago fire officials, another child was transported to Community First Hospital.

According to CFD spokesman Larry Langford, the fire occurred at the home of an active Chicago firefighter who was on-duty at the time of the blaze.

According to Langford, the firefighter rushed to the scene after hearing his own address over the scanner.

A neighbor reported hearing a loud bang and looking out the window to see the house completely engulfed in flames. That’s when he called for assistance.

“I know there’s three children in the house and a mother,” John M. said.

The home’s damage was visible early Wednesday morning.

Fire inspectors have arrived to determine the cause of the fire.

Records show that the Texas mother charged with the fatal stabbing of her three children has a criminal history.

According to charging documents, a Texas mother is facing charges after being accused of stabbing five of her children and killing three of them in a rural town about 40 miles south of Dallas.

According to ABC affiliate WFAA-TV, Shamaiya Hall, 25, is charged with three counts of capital murder and has a $6 million bond.

According to the news station, it all started at a home in Italy, Texas, when a Child Protective Services worker showed up unannounced, suspecting Hall was having unsupervised visitations with her children.

That’s when Hall allegedly stabbed her five children, ages four, five, five, six, and thirteen months.

On Friday afternoon, authorities discovered her 5-year-old twins and 6-year-old boy dead inside the home near Stafford Elementary School.

According to WFAA-TV, her other two children, a 4-year-old boy and a 13-month-old girl, were flown to the hospital with stab wounds and unknown conditions.

CPS officials previously placed the children under the guardianship of another relative, according to WFAA.

Documents reveal that Hall was detained for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the past after being accused of stabbing her sister’s boyfriend in 2017.

According to an arrest affidavit, Hall’s twin sister, Troyshaye Mone Hall, was previously arrested for allegedly stabbing her 7-year-old daughter to death in June 2021.
