One person lost their life and three more were injured after a van collided with a crowd of people after Pinkpop in the early hours of this morning.

Dutch police arrested a man Monday for driving his van off the road and into four people at the end of a music festival in the Netherlands.

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.

The incident took place at Pinkpop, located in Landgraaf in the south of the country, at roughly 04:00 (02:00 GMT) on Monday.

Following the incident, a police statement said the van drove away from the scene and was being sought.

Cuper during the post-match conference said luck was against his team as they got punished for the "few minutes" they made. It was Cheryshev's third goal of the World Cup, putting him tied with Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the scoring chart.

The 35-year-old man who died as a result of the crash was a local festival volunteer, per BBC.

Pinkpop is held in Landgraaf, a small town near the German and Belgian borders, 220 km (140 miles) southeast of Amsterdam.

The three-day concert, which is traditionally attended by tens of thousands of music fans, ended late Sunday with a performance by Bruno Mars.

Terrorists have driven vehicles into crowds of people in attacks in London, Berlin, Barcelona and other European cities in recent years. Mars closed the three-day-festival shortly before midnight.

The incident took place on a street that was one of two exits from the concert grounds.
