basically, this happened in city 驻马店 (Zhumadian) in 河南 (Henan) province, China. Happened in April 2017.

The video is uploaded to internet on 2017-06-07, and became viral.

Part of the reason nobody helped because there was a incident in 2006 , where a old woman got hit by car or fell, and someone helped, and the victum blamed the helper, and went to court, and the court decided that the helper is responsible. (it's not clear exactly what happened) With that incident, and also general stories in China, and some Chinese cultural illness, it's widely said or joked in China online communities that never help someone or such.

See Xu Shoulan v. Peng Yu:, Chinese version 南京彭宇案. (note: the Wikipedia articles there may not be unbiased, but at least gives some idea of the incident.)

The woman who got hit died. The drivers are caught, and subject to law. According to reports, the case is still going.

In USA, whenever an incident happens, we go bats about god, gun, gay. In China, they have a illness of their own. Everytime a incident happened, Chinese people accuse Chinese, Chinese culture, and government, in a irrational and irresponsible way.

中青在线驻马店6月8日电(张玉甫 中国青年报·中青在线记者潘志贤)从6月7日开始,一起今年4月发生在河南省驻马店市的交通肇事案件视频,引发全网关注。从视频看,因肇事车逃逸和现场经过路人和车辆未对被撞倒女子及时施救,从而引发“路人太冷漠”的质疑。

今天上午,中国青年报·中青在线记者赶赴事发地了解到,事发地为一小路口,至今没有安装红绿灯,附近商铺店主提起路人的冷漠,也都十分气愤。对此,驻马店警方表示:“当时有十几个人拨打110、120电话。”

6月7日,一段监控视频在网络热传,视频显示:一女子在过马路时被撞倒地,但十余名路人和十多个途经车辆均无视漠然经过,其间经过的车辆和行人无一上前施救,结果女子再遭车辆碾压身亡。

该视频引发了网友的激烈讨论。经证实,此事于今年4月发生在河南省驻马店市区。6月7日深夜,驻马店市公安局通过其官方微博发布通告证实,当事女子已身亡,此案系一起交通肇事案件。

by the way, if you are in a chinese online chat community, you see vids like these a lot, almost every month. Such as car accidents, suicide. (in USA, basically videos of gore are self-censored, e.g. there are lots car accidents, suicide, but you don't see them on youtube or twitter, because they are not allowed, or you got reported.)

also, if u American, what you read about China in English is mostly fake news, news that you want to hear. (such as, China does not respect human rights, Chinese people want democracy, gov corruption, China is building big weapons, etc.) Yes, there are angry Chinese in China, but not about the things you thought.
