MINNEAPOLIS - The hit-and-run death of a Roseville man in which Amy Senser was the driver has been ruled accidental, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office in a story posted on Star Tribune's website this afternoon.

The ruling said Anousone Phanthavong, 38, died of multiple blunt force injuries. He was hit the night of Aug. 23 as he put gas in his car after it stalled on a Minneapolis freeway ramp, the Star Tribune said (

So far, Senser, 45, and her husband, former Vikings star Joe Senser, 55, have refused to talk to authorities, although her lawyer has admitted that she was driving the Mercedes-Benz sport-utility vehicle on the night it struck and killed Phanthavong, the story said.
