NEW YORK (AP) - A California woman and her daughter are suing a New York City parking garage and a couple of its employees over a violin that got run over.

Beth Bergman filed the suit in Manhattan on Friday.

She claims she and her daughter were taking their possessions out of a car at the West 51st Street garage in August. They had put the expensive Degani violin in its case on the ground.

The suit says an employee drove over the instrument and caused damage in excess of $85,000.

A call to the garage company was not immediately returned on Sunday.

An employee named in the suit, Victor Asitimbay, told The New York Post, "We didn't do anything wrong. If you have something very special, you don't put it on the floor."
