A 26-year-old woman has left a Marilyn Manson concert ruined and devastated on a Canadian street after an explosive car crash.
Daniella Leis, who pleaded guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm in October 2020, caused damages estimated between $10 million and $15 million. She was sentenced to three years in prison in February 2021 and is now suing the venue for kicking her out of the venue despite her level of intoxication, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Dubbed a “car bomb” fiasco by the CBC, the incident happened on August 14, 2019 at 450 Woodman Ave in London, Ontario, Canada – a seven-minute drive from the show at Budweiser Gardens Arena. Leis crashed his Ford Fusion, which had been registered under his father’s name, in one house. But moments later, a broken gas line caused by the crash set off an explosion that destroyed four homes and injured seven nearby people, according to the CBC.
She has also faced legal backlash in at least six civil lawsuits urging her to pay damages, according to The Independent. This prompted Leis and her father, Shawn, to file a lawsuit against Ovations Ontario Food Services, which they say should also share some of the liability.
According to the CBC, Leis and her father accuse Ovations Ontario Food Services of having no regard for her “intended mode of transportation because she existed Budweiser Gardens when they knew or should have known she was or asked to be drunk. and/or altered.”
The couple also accuse the company and/or servers of serving Leis “when they knew or should have known she was or would become intoxicated,” CBC reported. The lawsuit added that the workers “ejected Leis from the scene while failing to take steps to ensure she would not drive home.” according to the New York Post.
Insider was unable to obtain a copy of the legal documents. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice and Oak View Group, owner of Ovations Ontario Food Services, did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. Leis was not immediately reachable for comment.
