MISSION VIEJO AP) — Authorities say a car has crashed into the front of a Southern California home, killing a man inside his bed before dawn.

Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock says authorities were called shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday after a suspected drunk driver plowed a car into the front bedroom of a house in Mission Viejo.

Hallock says a man lying in bed was killed in the crash. He was not immediately identified.

Hallock says 27-year-old Kourosh Keshmiri was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence.

Hallock says it was not immediately clear how fast the car was going downhill when it jumped the curb and landed inside the house.

Authorities say Keshmiri was convicted of driving under the influence in 2010. A message was left for his attorney.
