Hot air balloon crashes in Lockhart, no survivors

A hot air balloon caught fire and crashed in Lockhart on Saturday morning. At least sixteen people were killed.

The Caldwell County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about a possible vehicle accident on Jolly Road, north of Cistern Road in the Maxwell Texas area. When emergency responders arrived on scene, it was apparent that the reported fire was the basket portion of a hot air balloon.

The Texas Department of Public Safety was notified and the scene was secured. That portion of Jolly Road will be closed until the preliminary investigation is completed. Initially federal officials reported that there were sixteen people on board the balloon.

Investigators are determining the number and the identities of the victims at this time.

Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement following the hot air balloon crash:

"Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences for all those who have been affected by today's heartbreaking tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, as well as the Lockhart community. The investigation into the cause of this tragic accident will continue, and I ask all of Texas to join us in praying for those lost."

Lockhart is about 30 miles southeast of Austin.

This is a developing story and will be updated with new information as it becomes available.
