A driver was killed when his car slammed into a property wall in Lake Forest, authorities said Wednesday.

The vehicle appeared to have crossed the center divider of Lake Forest Drive before it struck and partially pierced the rear property wall of a residence on the corner of Queensbury Drive around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, said Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Gary Strachan. The front half of the vehicle caught fire on impact, he said.

The vehicle was a restored 1966 Mustang, a news videographer reported from the scene. What caused the driver to lose control was not immediately clear.
