MINNEAPOLIS - The jury in the Amy Senser trial does not believe she knew she hit a person when she struck and killed Anousone Phanthavong.

This, according to court documents KARE 11 obtained Thursday that included a note from the jury.

The note said simply, "Can this be read in the courtroom in front of Ms. Senser? We believe, she believed she hit a car or a vehicle and not a person."

The handwritten note was signed by the jury foreperson.

Jurors handed the note to a court deputy seconds before they delivered their verdict in the case.
Senser was found guilty on two felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide.

We'll have more on the implications of this correspondence later today on KARE 11 News.
