A sleeping man was killed today when a car launched into his house in Mission Viejo, and the driver of the car was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

Photos and video from the crash scene show a maroon Cadillac launched off the ground and into the house, and it is still sitting all the way inside the building while police examine damage to a gas line. KTLA has video.

The driver was Kourosh Keshmiri, 27, who was booked for felony drunken driving with a prior conviction, according to the O.C. Sheriff's Department. The victim's name has not been released.
