(CNN)Festivities at a hot air balloon festival in Missouri abruptly turned into fright as one of the balloons botched its landing and crashed into crowd of spectators.

An “experienced balloonist” was attempting to land when the hot air balloon grazed a tree, tipping the basket, the event committee told CNN affiliate KHQA.

“Thankfully, there were no serious injuries, and the event continued,” the committee said in a statement.

    Stephanie Haught said she barely got out of the way before the balloon crashed. In a video she posted to Facebook, the balloonist is seen waving for people to get out of the way as the balloon descends.

    Another event attendee told KHQA the basket hit the ground right behind him and “ran over his mother.” Other than a small cut on her finger his mother is fine, he said.
