A heartbroken Queensland woman has paid tribute to the love of her life and father of her children who was killed after being hit by a car while out for an evening jog.
Bryce Williams was running along Nanago Brooklands Road in Nanango, west of the Sunshine Coast, on Tuesday when the tragic accident occurred.
Police and ambulance were called at about 6.30pm, however the 33-year-old died at the scene, leaving behind his partner, influencer Abbey Ginns, and children Woodi and Rome.
Ms Ginns took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute to her other half, describing him as "the best guy on earth".
"The pain in my heart is harrowing, this is incomprehensible. My beautiful, perfect person, how can you be gone..." she wrote.
"I'm struggling to find the words to do you justice, You touched more lives than somebody would in 100 lifetimes my darling. The safest, most hilarious, generous golden light in our lives. The epitome of the best guy on earth.
"Your heart is in mine, Woodi's and Rome's infinitely. I have no more words, only tears. You are my forever, you are my home. I love you."
After his passing a GoFundMe fundraising page was launched to help support his family, which has already raised more than $325,000 — triple the target — since kickstarting one day ago.
Days before his death, the family had all returned from a blissful holiday in Vietnam.
Tributes flow as people mourn Bryce Williams' death
Many who had known Mr Williams have taken to social media to share stories about what a wonderful person he was.
“Everyone who knows Bryce, whether it’s really well or not, has felt his loss tremendously,” campaign organiser Samantha Servodio wrote on the fundraising page.
“He was the funniest man we all knew, greatest dad, and a beyond loving partner.
“Bryce was such a hard worker, always going above and beyond to support his family, so while he can’t, we ask you all to help support his loved ones during this hard and heartbreaking time that is honestly incomprehensible.”
A friend of Mr Williams and Ms Ginns, Sheridan Austin, shared on Instagram she was "rocked to the core" by his sudden death.
"My for what has forever felt like a blood-related bestie, lost the love of her life in a tragic unforeseen accident," she said.
"I am truly forever inspired by how phenomenal these humans are, their selflessness, the brightest light they brought into so many lives, their constant zest for life and hands down getting the most out of every single damn day.
"We are absolutely rocked to our core not only trying to fathom that he’s gone, but that she now needs to raise her two babies without him.
"Whilst she isn’t alone in the slightest because of our giant beyond loving community, nothing is the same without him.
"It’s true that you really never know when it is your last second, minute or day."
Ms Ginns and Mr Williams started their own furniture company, Huski Studios, in 2018. The influencer had appeared in ads for Sportsgirl in the past, while her brother, Ryan, won Big Brother in 2014.
A spokeswoman from QPS told The Toowoomba Chronicle a 51-year-old man from Nanango was assisting police at the scene and a white Ford Falcon was seized.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
