Police in the US have released shocking video of people walking past a dead accident victim to board a bus.

The bus surveillance video was taken late on July 1, in Arlington County.

Minutes earlier, 35-year-old Edgar Francisco Aguilar had been fatally struck by a car on a darkened stretch of road and his bloodied body lay on the footpath.

As the bus pulled up passengers walked past him.

While someone had called 911, none of the bystanders checked on the dead or dying man. One passenger crossed himself as he climbed into the bus.

Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck was reported as saying police released the video in a "good faith effort'' to get witnesses to come forward.

"The intent is solely to get these witnesses to... assist police in the reconstruction of what happened that night," Sternbeck said. "The intent is not to say these individuals are accountable for anything."

The video can be viewed here.
