MISSION VIEJO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man arrested after a fatal car crash into the front of a Southern California home was convicted in 2010 of driving under the influence.

Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Hallock says authorities were called shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday after a suspected drunk driver drove 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 has been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence.

It wasn't immediately clear how fast the car was going downhill when it jumped the curb and landed inside the house.

A message was left for Keshmiri's attorney wasn't immediately returned.
