A bus hit four people at a Dutch music festival in the early hours of Monday morning, killing one and wounding three before driving away, police said.

The condition of the three injured people is not yet known.

The incident casts a shadow on what had otherwise been a successful edition of Pinkpop, which is the longest continuously running rock/pop festival in the world, having taken place in the southern Netherlands since 1970. A 30-year-old man, a 26-year-old man, and a 23-year-old woman, all from the local area, are severely injured and being treated in hospital. The hit-and-run occurred near a campsite close to the festival grounds. The fatal victim was a 35-year-old man from Heerlen.

While the driver was later arrested after a search, police have explained that a "technical investigation into the exact circumstances of the collision" is now underway, meaning that it is not yet clear whether the incident was accidental or intentional.

Kolarov's tally was what all Serbia needed to carve out a close win, grabbing all three points to take the early lead in Group E. No doubt, at least one player of the national team of Costa Rica any more or less knowledgeable football fan, of course, knows.

As Dutch News reports, the incident happened at around 4am Monday morning, just hours after Bruno Mars closed the three-day festival, with approximately 67,000 music fans in attendance each day.

A festival that was headlined by Bruno Mars ended in tragedy after a van ploughed into a crowd of people leaving one person dead. Mars closed out the concert shortly before midnight.
