First and most importantly, good thoughts to those who were injured.

However, addressing the "People don't stop"...some have become very Leary of stopping or helping because of the GREADY people wanting to sue anyone and everyone involved....they may be bleeding to death, you help, but then a "shyster" lawyer sue the entire world and they get whacked....
I know New Jersey has a Good Samaritan law to prevent people from being sued successfully (anyone can sue anyone else over anything at anytime....the key is to get the lawsuits dismissed)

One has to be shown to have been grossly NEGLIGENT and to have done something far beyond what would be considered reasonable

All that said, the perception remains and many people are afraid to stop and help for fear of scum sucking lawyers and the scum sucking people you actually tried to help attempting to win a lawsuit against you.

Conversely I have read of a few cases where people who did NOT help out were sued.

It is a crazy world we live in
