Friends of teenager Nathan Balzano have taken to social media to pay tribute to a “beautiful person”.
The 19-year-old was killed last night when his beloved gold Holden ute left the roadway and crashed on Ninth Avenue at Llandilo.
Ambulance Paramedics desperately tried to save him but their efforts were in vain.
“Waking up to hear the horrible news that your life was taken too early,” said Courtney Luxford on Facebook.
“Will always cherish our memories in class and how happy you always were. You were infectious and will be missed by everyone.”
Skylar Wallace posted: “Such an awful tragedy… you were such a beautiful person.”
“Such a young and genuine person taken away too soon,” Trent Hunter posted.
“My deepest condolences go to the Balzano Family.”
Police are continuing their investigations into Monday night’s crash and will prepare a report for the Coroner.
