My name is Samantha Smith and I live off 136th street in Collinsville. Yesterday evening a hot air balloon hit the top of my stepfathers shop and then landed in the field right across the street from my house (140th street north) I got a few pictures of it and thought maybe you would want to share the story. I'm not 100% sure what company the balloon was from, but it did have a phone number on it. It eventually deflated so the pilot was never able to get it back off the ground. I haven't seen or heard if it was ever removed from the field this morning. I attached photos I took in this email. If you have any additional info about it I would love to know!
