It happened near 124th Street and Park Ave. around 1 a.m.

According to the New Berlin Police Department, a 68-year-old West Allis man was driving northbound before he crossed into the southbound lane and hit a parked car occupied by a 46-year-old Greenfield man. He then left the roadway and struck a 59-year-old Brookfield man on the front lawn of a bar and grill.

All three men were transported to the hospital. Police say none of the injuries are life-threatening.
