A second highway patrol officer, leading Senior Constable Thomas Kinnane, was critically injured.

“No one wants to go through this,” Trish Granger, Josh’s aunt, said.

“We are not just crying for our family. We cry for theirs too.”

Mr Moore’s friend, Reece, said he was a reliable mate.

“Josh was the best, any time of night you could ring him, he’d come and get you no matter where you were,” he said.

His sister Bianca added: “He was always there for me no matter what.”

Mr Moore had been heading to his mate Adam Leigh’s home, but he never made it.

Tributes have also continued to flow for Senior Constable Joyce, who is being remembered as a hero also when she was off duty, rescuing a 14-year-old girl with autism from the Murray River.

The girl’s father, Dale Barclay, said his daughter was out of her depth.

“It could have been pretty disastrous if Bria wasn’t there,” he said.

“I think they should be very proud of her, as a person and as a police officer.”
