ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Anchorage police have arrested a driver suspected of critically injuring a pedestrian in a hit-and-run collision last month.

Twenty-year-old Luke M. Jerde was arrested Friday on charges of assault, failure to render aid, reckless driving, tampering with evidence and driving without insurance.

The pedestrian, 27-year-old Zachary Mohs, was hit in midtown Anchorage on Sept. 20. Police say in a statement he suffered head injuries, lost part of a leg in the accident and remains hospitalized.

Witnesses saw a late-model red sports car leaving the scene of the accident. Police say it was a red Fiero, which they found two days later in a wooded area.

Police spokeswoman Anita Shell says Jerde is not the registered owner of the car, but was in the process of purchasing it.
