A star Canadian student who turned into an impulsive sex-mad dominatrix after suffering brain trauma in a horrific car crash has been awarded $1.5 million in damages.

A star Canadian student who turned into an impulsive sex-mad dominatrix after suffering brain trauma in a horrific car crash has been awarded $1.5 million in damages.

Alissa Afonina was in the top two per cent of her class and dreamt of becoming a filmmaker before the horrendous August 2008 smash, according to the National Post.

But after the incident, the Grade 11 pupil from Burnaby, British Columbia, suddenly lost control over her impulses and found it difficult to finish tasks.

The former student was a passenger in car being driven by her mom's then-boyfriend when the crash took place.

She also become isolated, started having outbursts and repeatedly made inappropriate sexual comments.

Afonina eventually ended up working as a dominatrix, reports Vice.com.

The Toyota Tacoma she was traveling in was being driven by her mom’s boyfriend at the time, Peter Jannson, when it ran off a wet road into a ditch. It ended up on its side near Salmon Arm, British Columbia.

Afonina’s brother Alexei and mom Alla were also passengers.

Justice Joel Grove ruled in January that Jannson was driving too fast and was therefore negligent.

Afonina’s claim for damages at B.C. Supreme Court this week centered not on whether her brain injury resulted from the crash, however, according to Metro.

Instead, attorneys argued as to whether it caused such a change in her personality that she ended up unable to hold down other employment and forced her into working in the sex trade.
