A southern California man was killed today when a car crashed into his bedroom while he was sleeping.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Department, the car jumped the curb and ran into the home located in Mission Viejo, Calif., around 3 a.m. today. Another person in the residence was unharmed.

"It woke me up, I heard the tires squeal, and then I heard the boom," a neighbor identified as Jacque, told ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles.

Lt. Jeff Hallock from the Orange County Sheriff's Department said that the road makes a sharp turn where the crash occurred.

Police took the driver, identified as Kourosh Keshmiri, 27, into custody for suspected drunk driving. According to police, Keshmiri has a misdemeanor drunk driving conviction from 2010, and his license was suspended after a pending drunk driving case in June.

Neither Keshmiri nor his passenger were seriously harmed in the crash.

The victim's name has not been released pending notification of his family.
