A San Francisco travel agency has suffered severe damage after an SUV driver crashed into its storefront this morning.

Around 11:25 a.m., an unknown person behind the wheel of a white Mazda SUV drove into The Oasis Tourist and Travel Agency at 843 Irving St. (and 10th Avenue), demolishing the front window before wedging itself in the middle of the office space. Police say no one was injured in the crash, including the driver.

While officials declined to identify the driver, they said that they did not appear to be impaired by drugs or alcohol. The driver remained on scene and cooperated with investigators. 

Officials were ultimately able to back the car out without towing it, but the office remains totaled, with a gaping hole in its front. 

No representatives for Oasis were on-site when a Hoodline reporter stopped by the crash site. We'll update this post if and when we learn more.
