Hot Air Balloon Crash In Texas Leaves 16 Dead
A hot air balloon carrying at least 16 people crashed in Central Texas Saturday morning.
It does not appear that anyone survived the fiery crash, Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
Lynn Lunsford with the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement that the accident happened about 7:40 a.m. Saturday near Lockhart, Texas, when the hot air balloon crashed into a pasture.
It’s unclear what caused the crash. No other details were immediately available.
What a terrible and horrific way to pass.
Our sincerest condolences go out to the family and friends of the deceased.
