Rockville college student among 4 killed in Ohio plane crash

An 18-year-old Rockville man was one of four college students killed in a plane crash in Ohio Monday night, police said.

Abraham Pishevar, a Georgetown Preparatory School graduate and freshman at Case Western Reserve University, died in the crash at about 10 p.m., shortly after takeoff at Cuyahoga County Regional Airport, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol.

The other three men aboard the small Cessna aircraft were also Case Western students — William Felten, 20, of Saginaw, Mich.; Lucas Marcelli, 20, of Massillon, Ohio; and John Hill, 18, of St. Simons, Ga., the university said.

The cause of the crash has not yet been determined, a highway patrol spokesman said.

Georgetown Prep called Pishevar "truly a man for others," in a tribute on its website.

"Abraham embodied the Georgetown Prep mission," the statement said. "He was a dedicated and enthusiastic student and key contributor on both the varsity football and wrestling teams."
