AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A 34-year-old Dutchman who on Monday drove his delivery van into a group of concert-goers, killing one and critically injuring three others, had no terrorist motive, prosecutors said on Tuesday.

The van driver turned himself in on Monday, hours after he hit the visitors to the Pinkpop music festival in the south of the Netherlands.

The white van struck the concert-goers on a street surrounding one of the festival's camping grounds at around 4 a.m. (3.00 a.m. BST), hours after the headline act, R&B artist Bruno Mars, had performed in front of 70,000 people.

Eyewitnesses told Dutch media that they had seen a small group of people sitting in the road shortly before the incident.
