I saw the video, but I did not see anyone stopping traffic.
The first thing anyone should have done is to check and see if he was still breathing. Someone could hav at least tried to cover him. The first thing to do besides ensuring that the person is breathing is to treat for shock.
Also to your question of whether any of us would have done. Yes I would have helped. I have done so in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
The second thing I would have liked to do is to track down the punk who ran him over and beat the living sh!t out of him.

Would have called 911? People did that.
Would you have stopped traffic? People did that.
Would you have tried to remember the plate numbers? People did that.
What else can a person with no medical training be expected to do? This isn't a movie where people could have gone over and done the old "Don't you DIE ON ME!!!" routine to save their life.

Calling 911 does not expose you to liability.
I guess it really is true.... you simply can't fix stupid.

It would seem people are more likely to stop and help an injured animal than a human...
