Sadly, there were two deaths at the Woodstock festival. One of the deaths resulted from a drug overdose, and the other one was someone who had fallen asleep in a nearby field and was accidentally run over by a tractor.

Other than those two deaths, most of the festival was fairly peaceful. There was medical support on sight, which helped with some of the injuries that occurred during the weekend.
