Alcohol appears to be a factor in a hit-and-run crash that left a moped rider in critical condition this morning in the Ala Moana area, police said.

A 32-year-old Honolulu man was riding a moped Diamond Head-bound on Kapiolani Boulevard at about 12:05 a.m. today when a 46-year-old man made a left turn onto Atkinson Drive, directly in the path of the moped driver, police said.

The moped driver struck the 2009 Volkswagen car and was thrown onto the roadway, police said. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the car, a Salt Lake man, fled the scene and was later arrested.
