A van slammed into pedestrians near a campsite at a major music festival in the Netherlands yesterday, killing one person and seriously injuring three others, police said in a statement.
Dutch police arrested the driver of a delivery van that hit festival-goers, the statement said.

A rented van driven in a deadly rampage along a crowded sidewalk in Toronto is the latest example of a driver using a vehicle as a weapon in recent years.

The city recorded 61 murders last year.
