The driver who was killed when his car crashed into a house in the exclusive community of Coto de Caza in Orange County, was identified Saturday as 22-year-old Franz Nalezny of Trabuco Canyon, the Orange County coroner’s office said.
Nalezny vehicle was traveling southbound on Vista del Verde Friday night when it jumped the curb, bounced off a wall and hit a house, said Capt. Steve Concialdi with Orange County Fire Authority.
Sources told KTLA Nalezny lived in the gated community.
The car finally came to rest on top of a wall next to the house, he said.
The crash was reported around 8 p.m. near the corner of Cherry Hills Drive and Vista del Verde.
A woman and her two young children, who were inside the house at the time of the crash, were not hurt, Concialdi said.
Correction: An earlier version of this story identified the driver as Franz Malezeny.
