Van ploughs into crowd at PinkPop festival, killing one and injuring three

Pinkpop crash

One person has been killed and three seriously injured in an incident involving a van at the Pinkpop music festival in Landgraaf.

A white van drove into a group of revellers at the Pinkpop festival in the southern town of Landgraaf, just hours after a performance by U.S. singer Bruno Mars.

The incident happened at around 4am on a road near one of the festival's three campsites.

The driver and vehicle, described in media reports as a small white minibus or van, are being sought by police. Police have not determined whether the crash was deliberate or accidental.

The incident occurred only hours after Bruno Mars closed the three-day festival with a headline set.

Police in the province of Limburg say they found the white van that was responsible for Monday's pre-dawn crash near a camping site close to the famous Pinkpop festival in the southeastern municipality of Landgraaf.

An alert service sent by emergency authorities to cellphones in the area warned people to be alert for a Fiat Diablo with the number 257 as part of its licence plate.

RTL news reported that a trauma helicopter, ambulances and a heavy police presence were at the scene.

The 49th edition of the PinkPop Festival began on Friday, and featured a lineup that included the likes of The Offspring, Pearl Jam, A Perfect Circle, and Foo Fighters, just to name a few.
