Man dies after being hit by four cars while leaving Brownstock Festival in Essex
Police appeal to anyone who saw the festival-goer walking in the area on Saturday night (August 31)
The man was found dead after leaving the three day festival on Saturday night (August 31). Police have said that the unnamed man, believed to be in his thirties, was "in collision with at least four cars" while making his way toward Farmbridge, Essex at 10.45pm.
The B1012 road was closed for eight hours while police carried out their investigations, but was reopened at about 6.45am on Sunday (September 1). Speaking to The Mirror, an Essex Police spokesman said: "It is believed that the pedestrian, a man in his thirties and from Surrey, was in collision with at least four cars." He added: "Police want to hear from anyone who saw the pedestrian walking in the area before 10.45pm. He was wearing blue denim shorts and might have been bare-chested. Any collision witnesses or anyone with information about events leading to the incident, should contact the Essex Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101."
A second man also died at Brownstock after taking 5-EAPB, a form of MDMA, with his friends. The man, in his thirties, was taken to Basildon Hospital where he later died. The man's girlfriend is also being treated in the same hospital where her condition is described as "stable".
This year's Brownstock took place at Morris Farm in Stow Maries, Essex and saw performances from Professor Green, Tom Odell, Devlin, The Fratellis and The Pigeon Detectives.
