ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Two hot-air balloons participating in Albuquerque, New Mexico’s annual balloon festival have been involved in separate accidents, with one landing on a truck and a second striking a power line.
Police Department spokesman Simon Drobik says there are no injuries reported from Tuesday morning’s incidents, which happened about a mile apart.
Drobik said a balloon struck a parked truck near an intersection about 7 miles south of Balloon Fiesta Park, where balloons launch daily.
The balloon that hit a power line knocked out power to 2,600 customers.
