Ten people had a lucky escape when their hot air balloon crashed on to power lines.
North Yorkshire Police said the incident happened at about 8.50am at West Haddlesey, near Selby.
A pilot and nine passengers were on board at the time.
Nobody was injured or stranded in the balloon, a police spokesman said.
The balloon is believed to have taken off from the Knavesmire overlooking the York Racecourse in the morning.
An investigation has been launched into the cause of the accident, which happened between West Haddlesey Road and Burkin Road.
Witness Richard Watson said he was taking his dogs for a walk in the morning when he spotted a couple of balloons.
He said the stricken balloon was "cascading" over the power lines with the basket on its side.
After a few minutes a couple of passengers managed to get out looking "dazed", he said.
