Car plows into bedroom in Calif., killing man

Posted: Updated:

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. (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 a Mission Viejo neighborhood.

Hallock says a man who was lying in bed was killed in the crash. The victim was not immediately identified.

Hallock says the driver of the car was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence.

The sheriff's spokesman says it was not immediately clear how fast the car was going downhill when it failed to follow a turn in the road, jumped the curb and landed inside the house.
