SUV crashes into tea house in Mission Dolores 

The structural integrity of a popular tea house in the Mission-Dolores neighborhood is being analyzed after a woman crashed into it Sunday afternoon, sending two people to the hospital and injuring three more.

Police and fire officials believe she had a medical condition seconds before she crashed the white Mercedes SUV around 4:30 p.m. at Samovar Tea Lounge, which is at 18th and Sanchez streets and sits below a residential unit.

Five people were injured, but three declined treatment while two were taken to a local hospital and are expected to survive, according to police.

This tea lounge was the first in a chain of three to open in The City in 2001. The other two are in Yerba Buena and at the corner of Laguna and Page streets.
