A vehicle hit four people and killed one at the Dutch music festival, where the likes of Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters headlined.
Police are searching for the driver of a white van after a vehicle struck music fans at Pinkpop Festival- killing one person before driving away.
As BBC reports, the Dutch festival was in the process of closing its doors for another year, when a vehicle ploughed into four festival-goers in the early hours of Monday (18 June), leaving one dead and three injured.
The organisers behind festival - which saw headliners in Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam - took to social media to confirm the horrific events and say they were "deeply shocked" at the news.
