Van crash kills 1 injures 3

A van ran into a small group of pop music fans near a popular festival in the Netherlands, killing one person and injuring three others before fleeing the scene Monday. A suspect turned himself in to police hours later.

Police in the province of Limburg said the suspect in the pre-dawn crash near the grounds of the Pinkpop festival was charged with manslaughter and attempted manslaughter. The festival ended late Sunday with a performance by Bruno Mars.

It was still unclear whether there was a motive behind the crash, which happened near a camp site, or whether it was a hit-and-run accident.

Police said the suspect was a local resident who drove the white van from the crash 200 kilometres (120 miles) north to Amsterdam, from where he called police to give himself up to police. They would not release more details because the investigation was continuing.

The person who was killed and the three injured also were local residents. Police said the survivors were hospitalized in very serious condition Monday afternoon.

The three-day Pinkpop, held in Landgraaf, is attended by tens of thousands of music fans.
