‘Within a blink of an eye, our entire lives changed’

The partner of a 23-year-old Mount Louisa man killed when his car hit a pole early this morning has shared a heartbreaking tribute to her "superhero".

Dion Zanetti died after crashing his car into a power pole when driving along Beach Road in Ayr just after midnight this morning.

According to LinkedIn, Mr Zanetti was a former James Cook University IT student.

His partner, Bree White, this afternoon paid tribute to Mr Zanetti, who she described as her best friend.

"I will forever be grateful for the time we spent together, how much you taught me and how amazing you were with (my daughter) Mackenzie," Bree wrote on her Facebook page.

"All our silly moments to our random holiday getaways I will forever cherish.

"You loved so much and you were passionate about everything you did.
