Jose Jimen was there when his friend, Edgar Aguilar, was hit by a car while running across the street. Jimen says after the Honda hit Aguilar, he fell and hit his head on a garbage can. Jose says the driver, who stopped, was distraught. But plenty of other people were not.
In video shot from a camera on a Metrobus, Aguilar is seen lying on the sidewalk next to the garbage can. People walk right by and get on the bus. One passenger even looks at Aguilar on the ground and does the sign of the cross.
"It's more trouble than it's worth for some people or it creates extra work for them, so they would rather just ignore it and move on," says resident Mike Ford.
In Virginia, it is not a crime fail to help.
There were several 911 calls. You can see police lights in the distance in the video. Investigators hope witnesses can give them more details about what happened. They put out the video hoping witnesses would come forward.
The accident happened on July 1 at around 9:30 p.m. on Columbia Pike at the intersection of Four Mile Run Drive. Police say the traffic light at the intersection was not working because of the big June storm.
Friends say Aguilar lived in Prince William County and worked hanging dry wall. He was just 22 years old.
Police say the woman who was driving the car that hit Aguilar has been "cooperating fully." She has not been charged.
