A hot air balloon was dragged 300 feet after colliding with some power lines near Arvada Saturday morning.

The crash was one of four separate crashes or hard landings in the Denver metro area, according to sister station KCNC. All were between Louisville and the Rocky Flats area.

One person onboard the balloon that crashed near Arvada was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. Two others were uninjured. The crash happened at 8 a.m. near the intersection of highways 72 and 93.

The crash caused a small brush fire, but the Arvada Fire District responded and got it out quickly. It also closed Highway 72 for a time due to downed power lines.
