Power line incident

WESTPORT, Mass. -- A hot air balloon came down unexpectedly in Westport Friday, crashing on a power line and causing a power outage in more than 100 homes.

NSTAR spokesman Mike Durand says it was not clear what caused the early morning accident that also broke a utility pole on Sodom Road.

Police said six passengers and one pilot were aboard the hot air balloon but did not know the ballon's origin or their destination. No one was seriously injured.
