STRATFORD — A 27-year-old guidance counselor has died following a two-vehicle crash on the the Merritt Parkway in Stratford.

Police said Jordan Soares was riding as a front-seat passenger in his own car early Sunday morning when the car collided with another vehicle on Route 15 in Stratford. The other vehicle struck the center median, while Soares’ car rolled down the right embankment.

Police said Soares’ car flipped and ejected all three occupants. Soares was pronounced dead at the hospital while the other two were hospitalized with serious injuries. The occupants of the other vehicle were not injured.

Soares, of Bridgeport, worked as a guidance counselor at Columbus Elementary School and the Geraldine Claytor Magnet Academy. The Bridgeport Public Schools superintendent calls his death “unbelievably tragic.”
