MANKATO — The wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser has told a jury at her fatal hit-and-run trial that she thought she struck a construction barrel or a pothole, not a man.
Amy Senser testified in her own defense Monday as her trial entered its second week.
Senser choked up several times as she spoke to jurors. Killed in the accident last August was Anousone Phanthavong (ah-NOO'-sahn PAN'-tah-wong), a restaurant cook who was filling his car with gas.
Senser testified that she had only part of a glass of wine the night of the accident and didn't think it affected her ability to drive.
