One person is dead and the search continues for the remains of two others in a hot air balloon crash in Virginia after bad weather complicated the search overnight.

It's believed the balloon struck some power lines yesterday before catching fire and eventually crashing.

Witnesses at the Mid-Atlantic Balloon Festival report that they could hear people in the balloon scream they were going to die.

The deadly accident prompted organizers of the Festival to cancel the rest of the weekend event.
