APD seeks vehicle, 2nd pedestrian in fatal hit-and-run
The man struck and killed by a vehicle Sunday in Anchorage has been named by police, who are hoping to speak with another pedestrian as well as people in a minivan seen nearby.
Alfred Komok, 65, was the man hit and killed by an unidentified vehicle at about 11 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Commercial and Mountain View Drives, police spokeswoman Renee Oistad said Thursday.
“Surveillance footage shows that Komok was walking with another individual at the time of the crash,” Oistad wrote. “That second person was unharmed and walked away from the scene.”
Neither a description of the second pedestrian nor word on whether that person saw Komok being struck or tried to help him were available Thursday, Oistad said.
Investigators would also like to speak with the occupants of what witnesses tentatively described as a gold Chrysler Town and Country minivan seen in the area.
“We are looking for them as witnesses,” Oistad said.
Oistad declined to say whether police believed that vehicle had struck Komok.
Anyone with information on the collision that killed Komok is asked to call APD dispatchers at 907-786-8900, or contact Anchorage Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP or through its website.
