Pop sensation Tones and I has penned an emotion-charged tribute to a close mate and talented footy player who died in a horrific car crash in the early hours of Australia Day.

The Melbourne-based singer said Frankston Bombers footballer Ben Tournier was like a 'brother' to her in the online tribute on Wednesday morning.

The talented athlete, 29, was killed when he lost control of his car and rolled off the Nepean Highway on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula at about 12.15am on Tuesday.

Police believe the car careered off the road after hitting two light poles near Weber Drive in Mornington.
