Anchorage detectives working with wrecked auto parts found at the scene of a hit-and-run pedestrian accident said Friday the suspect vehicle is a 1984 to 1988 red Pontiac Fiero with a damaged right headlight assembly.

Police believe the two-door, two-seat Pontiac sports car ran into a 26-year-old Anchorage man as he was trying to cross Arctic Boulevard at 45th Avenue around 8:15 p.m. Thursday. The intersection is just south of Tudor Road.

The pedestrian, Zachary Mohs, was left in critical condition by the fleeing driver.

The intersection of Arctic and Tudor Road was closed for nearly three hours while police investigated Thursday night, police spokeswoman Marlene Lammers said.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the collision or has information about the Pontiac of its driver to call them at 786-8900. To stay anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward, people can call Anchorage Crime Stoppers at 561-7867.
