Why you should not stop the car to see an accident

No, you are not required by law to stop and assist if you see a car accident happen, provided you are not involved in the accident. In the U.S., most states have no general law that says citizens have a duty to stop and render aid. In other words, no one can sue you if you don’t stop to help.

This does not apply if you’re in any way party to the accident, though. If you are involved in the accident, Indiana law requires you stop. Failure to do so deems the accident a hit and run, which is a criminal offense.
