Joe Senser: Wife said she struck construction cone

MINNEAPOLIS — Former Minnesota Vikings tight end Joe Senser says his wife told him she hit a construction cone the morning after a man was killed on a highway exit ramp.

But Senser testified Wednesday that he knew his wife had not hit a parking cone as she claimed, because of the damage to his Mercedes-Benz SUV.

Amy Senser is on trial on charges that she ran down 38-year-old Anousone Phanthavong last August. She has admitted being behind the wheel.

The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/IktTzW) reports Joe Senser testified he questioned his wife after reading about the fatal crash, but she was adamant that she had struck a construction cone.

Earlier, an expert witness testified that 45 text messages were deleted from Amy Senser's cellphone the day after the crash.
