The crash was reported around 8 p.m. near the corner of  Cherry Hills Drive and Vista del Verde (map).

The man’s vehicle was traveling southbound on Vista del Verde when it jumped the curb, bounced off a wall and hit a house, said Capt. Steve Concialdi with Orange County Fire Authority.  The car finally came to rest on top of a block wall next to the house, he said.

The young man was killed in the crash.

A woman and her two young children, who were inside the house at the time of the crash, were not hurt, Concialdi said.
