Police say they've located and seized a red 1984 Pontiac Fiero believed to be involved in Sept. 20 hit-and-run collision that seriously injured 26-year-old Anchorage resident Zachary Mohs.

Detectives have interviewed a man they believe was the driver, said Anchorage Police Department spokesman Lt. Dave Parker. The man is not the registered owner of the vehicle, he said.

Police haven't released the driver's name and no arrests have been made.

"(Detectives) are still working the case and will determine whether charging is in order," Parker said.

Police seized the Pontiac Fiero, which is now in a secure APD storage facility being tested for evidence.

Mohs was struck while trying to cross Arctic Boulevard near the intersection of Tudor Road at around 8:15 p.m. on Sept. 20, police said.

He remains in critical condition at Providence Alaska Medical Center.

A tip from a member of the public led police to the vehicle and driver, Parker said.
