Hot air balloon hits power lines in Mass.

A hot air balloon crashed into power lines in Massachusetts Saturday, but only minor injures have been reported, an official told CBS News.

Constantino Zapantis, director of the emergency management agency in Clinton, said six people were in the gondola at the time of the crash.

Bystanders Ruchika Misra and Christopher Almada caught the crash on a cell phone.

In their video, when the gondola crashed, a bright flash and a loud buzzing sound came from the power lines.

The balloon continued to descend to the ground in the video as other bystanders called 911.
