3 injured in crash

One adult and two children suffered serious injuries Saturday night in a car crash involving multiple objects in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Metro Police responded to the crash about 9:05 p.m. at a Wal-Mart in the 7200 block of Arroyo Crossings, near Rainbow Boulevard. A Nissan Pathfinder driven by Getnet Tefera, 29, with 4- and 2-year-old passengers, was traveling north through the Wal-Mart parking lot when it struck a planter box and stop sign, Metro officials said.

The car then ricocheted into a tree, a shopping cart corral and a column in front of Wal-Mart before it came to a rest, Metro said. The driver and two passengers were taken to University Medical Center in serious condition.

Metro is investigating the crash.
