Hot air balloon carrying 9 crashes into power lines in Temecula
A hot air ballon crashed into some power lines in Temecula on Saturday, but none of the nine passengers was injured.
The passengers were flying high above Temecula about 8:30 a.m. when their balloon was knocked into power lines and trees.
The balloon came down near the 39000 block of Camino del Vino, where residents feared the crash would spark the heavily wooded area.
"I saw it all from by backyard," neighbor Sara Hostetler told KTLA-TV Channel 5. "The ballon was coming down and my dog was barking for me to come outside when I saw them trying to lift and they hit the wire."
Authorities are investigating.
