Grillo was also injured by the explosion, as it sent the manhole cover 25 feet in the air and hit him in the head.
In the lawsuit, Grillo claims the company is responsible for the damages because it failed to prevent wire erosion, did not install a safe manhole cover and did not warn the public to stay away from the manhole, per the report.
