MILWAUKEE -- A woman who suffered a broken neck in a car accident with a Milwaukee County deputy in February 2013 has filed a federal lawsuit against that deputy and the sheriff.  

Initally, the deputy reported his squad car was hit by Tanya Weyker's car.  Weyker was even accused of driving under the influence.

The lawsuit claims that her blood tests not only came back clean, but that surveilance video shows the deputy ran a stop sign and t-boned her car.  

Weyker is suing for the county to cover her medical expenses.
