Woman sues bar – blasted $10m home after getting so drunk – New York Post

She was so bombed that she blew up a house.

A Canadian woman who filed for $10million in damages after driving drunk, crashing into a house and causing an explosion is now suing the concert venue that provided her with alcoholic beverages – as she claims the owners are to blame.

The “car bomb” fiasco happened in August 2019 while 26-year-old Daniella Leis was driving home from a Marilyn Manson concert at the Budweiser Gardens Arena in London, Ontario, the CBC reported.

After drinking and driving at the show, Leis crashed her father’s registered Ford Fusion into a brick home on Woodman Ave. 450, a gas line ruptured, triggering a massive explosion that destroyed four homes and injured seven people.

Falling embers sparked fires in several nearby homes – and the entire neighborhood had to be evacuated, with gas and water supplies to the area shut off. Overall, the blast reportedly caused $9.8 million to $14.7 million in damage.

“The financial impact of Ms. Leis’ actions was enormous, with total damages estimated at nearly $15 million,” Justice George Orsini told the court.

Casualties, meanwhile, included two police officers and two firefighters, who sustained numerous injuries, with one firefighter forced to spend more than a week in a hospital before being discharged.

Leis subsequently pleaded guilty to four counts of disrupted driving and was sentenced to three years in prison in 2021.

However, the Canuck was unwilling to throw away their attempt to ease the financial strain.

This month, she and her father, Shawn Leis, filed a lawsuit against Ovations Ontario Food Services, the company that distributed the hooch. They allege that the drinks supplier shared responsibility for the blast, as staff “threw Leis out of the venue without taking any action to ensure she didn’t go home,” according to the legal documents.

In addition, Leis claimed that Ovations served her alcohol even though she knew the bar-goer was intoxicated, and accused her of “putting profit over safety” and that the resulting damage was “caused by negligence, breach of duty, injury or to.” was contributed to the contract” by the Bar Association.

In redress, they believe the liquor dealer is responsible for “any bounty or judgment amounts” resulting from multiple lawsuits brought against them by victims of Woodman Avenue.

That is, if the father-daughter duo has to pay any amount, then they are “entitled to contribution and compensation from [Ovations].”
