A man who was in bed was killed early Sunday when a car crashed into his Orange Country home. The driver of the car was arrested and suspected of driving under the influence.

The driver, Kourosh Keshmiri, 27, of Mission Viejo, was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and may face additional charges, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Keshmiri was driving on a suspended license due to an already pending DUI case, authorities said.

The red Cadillac Keshmiri was driving crashed through the front of a house in the 2600 block of Pacato Drive in Mission Viejo.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Family and neighbors identified the man as 60-year-old Ken Jackson. He was described as a motorcycle enthusiast.

The driver and one passenger, who was detained and released, suffered minor injuries, officials said.

The house wad badly damaged. The Cadillac almost went entirely though the front side of the home. A city engineer is needed to determine if the home was safe to live in or not. It could need to be destroyed.

There was another person in the home at the time of the accident, but they were not injured in the incident. The Southern California Gas Company was also called to secure a severed gas line, according to authorities.

This isn’t Keshmiri’s first incident with drunk driving. In August 2010, he was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI. He also has a pending case from June of this year that has led to the suspension of his license.
