MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Newly released court documents reveal witness accounts of the hit-and-run investigation involving Amy Senser.

Senser’s the wife of former Viking Joe Senser, and she’s scheduled to go on trial in April for the death of 38-year-old Anousone Panthavong.

Investigators are collecting Joe and Amy Senser’s cell phone records and credit card records to try and determine what she was doing the night of the crash.

Investigators also made note of a witness account, describing the driver who came back to the scene 45 minutes later.

Senser is facing two counts of vehicular homicide, following the hit-and-run accident that killed Panthavong.

Panthavong’s car was pulled over on the exit ramp of Interstate 94 and Riverside Avenue, while he was filling up his car with gas. That’s when he was hit by a vehicle that drove off.

New documents state investigators made note of a witness who saw a driver in a Mercedes SUV with front-end damage 45 minutes after the accident.

The witness told investigators the driver was a woman, around 30 years old with light-colored hair.

It also notes that Amy Senser is 45 and has brown hair.

The affidavit went on to state the Senser’s have a daughter, who was 26 at the time of the crash, and who has light hair. The address on her expired driver’s license is in close proximity to the scene of the crash.

Investigators also stated they got a call from a concerned citizen that Senser may have been out having dinner with her brother that night.

Her attorney has said Senser got lost while trying to get to the Xcel Energy Center to pick up her daughters — and did not know she hit someone.

Senser’s attorney, Eric Nelson, said the investigation is much more mature at this point than it was when the documents were filed in September. He would not comment on whether one of the Senser’s daughters could have been involved.
