Looks like he was actually hit by two cars, who were passing traffic over the double-yellow. Might be tied to some crime elsewhere.
I can see a few reasons why people may not have move in to help the man. First, it was probably a pretty gruesome sight, and most people would not
know how to help someone that badly injured anyway. Though I think I would have at least stepped into the roadway myself to make sure he wasn't run
As far as the people in the passing cars, again, there was probably not much they could probably do for the man.
The one thing I do find curious though, is that everyone has a cell phone these days, yet no one bothered to even call for help.
As far as the people who might have gotten vehichle descrips or saw the tags, they probably just don't have the time to get invloved. Sad but true
these days, with everyone living a paycheck or two away from being homless.
EDIT to add: The article said no one called, that the police just happened to find him laying there on the way to another call. But if the above
poster is correct, that would seem to make more sense.
