Three people suffered serious injuries Wednesday night after one of the rarest of transport collisions — a crash between a train and a hot air balloon. Authorities say the balloon hit a northbound Canadian National train in Burlington, Wisconsin, around 8:15PM. Two of the three injured adults aboard the balloon were airlifted to a hospital around 30 miles away and the third was transported by ambulance.
… Witnesses said the balloon appeared to be in distress as it descended. Witnesses said the balloon hit a chimney while flying over an industrial building and then hit the moving train.
