ROBBINSVILLE - A community is remembering a school superintendent who was struck and killed while jogging by a car driven by a student in the district.

A public memorial service for Robbinsville Superintendent Steven Mayer was held Friday afternoon at Princeton Alliance Church in Plainsboro. The service was televised at two other locations due to the size of the crowd that came out to show their respects.

Police say Mayer was struck Tuesday while jogging with his dog by a car driven by a 17-year-old student who was late for a class trip. The dog was also killed.

No tickets or charges have been filed against the student.

Schools were closed Tuesday and Wednesday so that students and staff could mourn. Schools were closed Friday because of Passover.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
