Teen Killed At Scottish Music Festival
Tragedy has struck Scottish festival T IN THE PARK after a teenager was killed by a lorry as he searched for a ticket to the event.
The festival took place over the weekend (11/12Jul09) with acts including The Killers, Katy Perry and Kings of Leon taking to the stage.
On Friday (10Jul09) Lachlan Gillies, 17, was distraught when he realised he had lost his pass for the main arena, and left his friends on site while he headed out to buy a ticket from nearby touts.
The teen was only minutes from the site when he was struck by a lorry, suffering fatal head injuries.
Pal Nikki Gallagher, 17, says, "It has put a dampener on everything but we are still trying to enjoy ourselves - Lachlan would have wanted us to try and have a good time. That is the kind of guy he was."
