Amy Senser's hit-and-run has been declared "accidental."
Amy Senser's hit-and-run accident that killed Anousone Phanthavong has finally been ruled just that -- an accident.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's has ruled that Phanthavong's death was "accidental," according to the Star Tribune. Phanthavong, the 38-year-old chef of True Thai restaurant, was hit and killed the night of August 23 while he was pulled over and filling up his broken-down car with gas.

Senser has yet to be arrested for any crime, and it's unclear how the medical examiner's report will change whatever charges she might someday face in court.

The medical examiner's report, released today, found that Phanthavong died of multiple blunt force injuries, the Star Tribune reports.

Jim Schwebel, a lawyer for the Phanthavong family in their wrongful death lawsuit against the Sensers, has previously claimed that Phanthavong was "dying" when Senser drove away from the scene of the accident. Amy Senser has yet to be arrested.

When they said earlier that Amy Senser was being dealt with like the average "Joe Blow", that is a bold face lie if i ever heard one!! And since she is pleading the "Fifth", that alone should tell people that their hiding something from everyone. We would have known about everything that  the average citizen was doing before, during and after the accident! So where's the fricken justice? Money talks!!! No consilation for the family of the deceased! Like one reader said "Rotten rich CUNTgets away with murder"!

Leaving the scene of the accident only happens for a few reasons. I would like to know how soon after the accident took place that the phone call was made to their attorney.  There need to be a look into the Sensor cell phone tower hit, credit card charges and a time line of all their movements for at least 6 hours before the accident took place.  Everyone should also stop going to their resturants unless you want to help pay for their defence attorney.  If the facts can be focused on they should be able to get a conviction of some kind.

It's sad to think that after she hit him, they were able to continue on with life as though nothing happened.  Hiding the fact, refusing to provide any information, using lame excuses.  How can you leave a person to die on the road and pretend that you didn't see anything?  It sure took them a while to come up with an excuse for the "I didn't know I killed a person accident", which I am sure their attorney did all the research before confessing that she hit Phantavong.  Be ashamed of yourself Amy Senser....I'm sure that if it was your husband, your daughters, or someone closely related to you, you would also want justice and to have the guilty admit their faults.  I guess the rich really do have a way to keep their trap shut so they don't get into trouble.  Remember...karma.

If she was driving the SUV, then convict her. If she is covering for someone (husband, DAUGHTER or friend) then convict both of them. WHY would you not stop after hitting an something???? I would stop if I thought it was a deer or dog, if for no other reason than to check the damage. Three things; money, elitist attitude and drugs/alcohol all probably played a part in this.

ENOUGH!!!! Equal law for everyone. Hang her high!

I'm sure it was an accident. Running the hell away and leaving him by the side of the road wasn't.

I can see the "hit" being accidental, but the "run"?

You racist/elitist whiners probably want to take this up with the Medical Examiner.......  And the Country Attorney.

She hasn't gotten away with anything. The death was accidental, but that doesn't excuse hit-and-run.
