A Queensland community is mourning the loss of a 32-year-old man who on Friday was killed when the truck he was in left the road and crashed into a dam.
Alexsander Cosic from North Lakes was travelling home from work when the fatal incident occurred in the Sunshine Coast region, leaving his fiancée Kiah Van Bruggen feeling "lost" and "in complete shock".
The tragic death comes just six weeks after the Brisbane couple got engaged. Just last week, the couple locked in a date for their dream wedding after two and half years together, Kiah revealed.
Queensland man 'deceased at the scene'
The 32-year-old, who was reportedly the owner of local business A & D Earthmoving, was a passenger in a tip-truck carrying earth-moving equipment which was travelling through West Woombye on Friday when it suddenly left the road and crashed, Queensland Police said.
Emergency crews located Alexsander deceased at the scene after arriving shortly after 12.45 pm. Meanwhile, the 27-year-old male driver was transported to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
Tragic tributes for 'amazing' man
Sharing the news on social media, Kiah described Alexsander as her "soul mate" and "best friend". "I am still waiting for you to come home to me however I know this isn't possible," she shared in a tragic tribute on Instagram on Friday.
"You truly were the best thing to ever come into my life. I am so proud of the amazing man you had become," she added. "I love you to infinity and beyond".
The post follows another from last week which showed Kiah flashing her engagement ring. "The day you made me the happiest girl in the world," she said marking the date, July 7.
The devastated Kiah shared another tribute to her fiancée on Sunday night alongside photos of the two of them. "The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained," she said. "I love you forever".
"He was a beautiful man that would give anyone the shirt off his back," she told The Sunshine Coast Daily. "He was always trying to help everybody wherever he could."
Friends and family 'have no words'
The news rocked friends and family of the couple who shared tributes on social media.
"There are no words! I am so so sorry! My heart truly aches for you," one wrote on Kiah's post. "Sending you all of the love. I can’t imagine how hard this is for you," said another.
Others said they "have no words" after hearing of the news. "My deepest condolences," said another.
The Forensic Crash Unit is continuing to investigate the crash which occurred at West Woombye. Witnesses or anyone with information or relevant vision are urged to contact police.
