WINDSOR, Ont. -- Plans to start a family and buy a house were destroyed for a 24-year-old Windsor man after an early morning single-vehicle collision Sunday claimed his life.

Sharri Lluhani, a roofer who family members say "was just starting out his life," was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on Riverside Drive East.

Staff Sgt. Geoff Dunmore said a 21-year-old Windsor woman driving Lluhani's black Dodge Ram pickup has been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death, after the truck slammed into a parked trailer Sunday around 3 a.m. near Clover Street. Her name was not released Sunday.

"He was a hard worker who never did harm to anyone," said Lluhani's 22-year-old brother Visar. "I'm going to miss him so much."

Lluhani was promoted to supervisor just months ago at Elite Roofing Windsor, said owner Dan Michos.

"He would never say no when it came to helping me," said Michos, who said he and Lluhani grew close as friends over the five years of his employment. "He was never really miserable and always tried to make other people happy when they weren't.

"He was just a phenomenal person."

Michos's wife Stephanie said Lluhani was always over at their house lending a helping hand, whether it was moving furniture or just playing with the kids.

"He was more than a worker," she said.

The passenger side of the pickup truck was shredded. Windsor firefighters used the Jaws of Life to extract the man's body, said Jose Andrade, the owner of the parked trailer.

Police notified Andrade shortly after the accident that his trailer had been struck. He arrived around 4 a.m. to what he called a "frantic scene.

"It was a very gruesome scene. It was horrible," he said.




The driver was sent with non-life threatening injuries to Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital, where she was still recovering Sunday night.

Staff Sgt. Steve Bodri said she's been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

Lluhani's family moved to Canada from Albania in 2000. His brother described the family as "heartbroken.

"He always had my back and it was ripped away from us just like that," Visar said. "He always put himself in front of others. He was just a loving, caring guy."

Visar said he and his brother were extremely close. He would have been out with Lluhani Saturday night at a friend's house on the west side, but he had to work, he said.

Andrade said he believes the pickup truck crashed into his dump truck parked near the side of the road and sent it flying into his trailer, where he stores his construction tools.

Andrade was doing stonework on a Riverside Drive home and had his dump truck and trailer parked outside. He estimates $30,000 in damage to his equipment, which included generators and cement saws.

"But that means nothing," he said. "A life was lost."

Both trucks were destroyed in the collision.

A neighbour two houses down found a back wheel of the pickup on her front lawn when she woke up.

The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said she and her husband slept through the accident, but woke up to "all kinds of cop cars and tarps covering the scene."

Police closed Riverside Drive between Greenpark Boulevard and Clover Street until Lluhani's body was removed shortly before noon Sunday.

It's such a sad tragedy. When are people gonna realize that drinking and driving is wrong and ends up badly. They need to realize they are not untouchable, and realize they are NOT ok to drive. So many peoples lives are at risk on the road. Grrr...this makes me so angry.

Prayers to the family.

Not if the passenger had designated the driver as DD and didn't realize the DD had more than a couple drinks.

they have now



Police have charged a young Windsor woman with 'impaired driving dausing death' following a horrific crash on Riverside Drive East early yesterday.

21 year old Stephanie Bravo is charged with driving the 2007 Dodge pickup truck that slammed into a construction truck and trailer near Clover Avenue shortly before 3 am.

Police found the mangled pickup truck just off the roadway on the north side of Riverside Drive.

23 year old Sharri Lluhani, who owned the pickup truck but was a passenger at the time, was killed in the crash.

The female driver was taken to Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital with non life threatening injuries, where she currently remains.

Police say speed and alcohol were a factor in the crash.
