After striking and killing a Roseville, Minn., man on an Interstate 94 exit ramp, Amy Senser sped off and drove around for more than a half hour, talking on the phone, before she drove back by the scene of the hit-and-run, according to an amended criminal complaint filed Monday.
Amy Senser has claimed she didn't know she struck a Roseville, Minn., man on an Interstate 94 exit ramp in Minneapolis before she left the scene last August. Her attorney, Eric Nelson, says the recently-completed investigation revealed additional proof that Senser, wife of former Minnesota Vikings tight end Joe Senser, didn't know she struck Anousone Phanthavong.
The complaint alleges that Wesley Gubbin passed three other vehicles Saturday before striking the bike ridden by 61-year-old Thomas Malloy of Minneapolis. Molloy was pronounced dead a short time later.
The Highway Patrol said Zachary Eichstadt, 16, of De Smet, was one of two pedestrians hit Friday by a pickup truck that allegedly did not stop at a stop sign. The second pedestrian was treated for minor injuries.
The Wednesday ruling will have little effect on the Minnesota State Patrol's ongoing investigation or the severity of any potential charges that may be filed against Amy Senser, the wife of former Minnesota Vikings star Joe Senser, said Lt. Eric Roeske, a spokesman for the patrol.
Attorney Eric Nelson wouldn't say who was behind the wheel on the night of the accident. Nelson added that he advised the Senser family members to invoke their Fifth Amendment rights to remain silent before a meeting with investigators on Tuesday.
Alex Balluff, a former standout St. Francis High School student-athlete who suffered traumatic brain injuries when hit by a drunk driver while walking along Duluth's Rice Lake Road last October, was struck again by a vehicle while walking near his home early Tuesday morning.
