An East Meadow woman lost control of her sedan in a Uniondale parking lot Thursday and plowed into three people at a bus stop, seriously injuring one of them, Nassau police said.

The driver’s Toyota Corolla mounted a curb at the Walmart parking lot on Jerusalem Avenue at about 2:45 p.m., went through a fence and hit three women at the bus stop in front of the store, police said.
