LOVELAND, OH (FOX19) - Moeller High School held a Mass Monday morning to help students in the grieving process after one of their classmates was killed over the weekend.

Joshua Pflum, 17, was skateboarding on Paxton Road just before midnight on Friday when he was struck and killed by another teenager.

Pflum was a senior at Moeller. He would have been 18 years old on Tuesday.

Dan Shannon, a staff member at Moeller High School, says Pflum was a "class act" who was dealing with recently losing his mother to cancer.

"He'd been through some very difficult times in his high school career, losing his mother to cancer," said Shannon.

The Moeller web site is asking students to please keep Josh, Josh's brother, Stephen - a junior at Moeller - and their father, Stephen Sr. all in their prayers.

Following Monday morning's Mass, students met with their Mentor Teacher in their Mentor Group. Moeller officials say they implemented the House System of student governance to assist with pastoral care, community building, and leadership development several years ago.

In addition, grief counselors will be available to students throughout the week.

The driver in the crash is a 16-year-old from Cincinnati. Investigators say Josh knew him.

The driver was not cited and police say he was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. He suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Ohio State Patrol says both teenagers were traveling eastbound on Paxton Road in Clermont County when the accident occurred.
