WEBSTER - Police say two people, including a fourth grade teacher, were killed in a wrong-way crash on Route 395 South in Webster Saturday night.

Police were called to the scene at 10:17 p.m., and patrols in the area responded within moments. 

Police said Jordan Pimentel, 31, of Auburn was driving a GMC Sierra north on the southbound side of the road. 

Kayla Morey, 35, of Dayville, Conn. was driving south when police said Pimentel slammed into her head-on.

Both drivers were declared dead at the scene of the crash.  

Morey was a fourth grade teacher at Putnam Elementary School in Connecticut. 

"Miss Morey was a gifted and talented teacher who deeply cared for her students. She has been a teacher in Putnam since 2012 and touched the lives of many students and colleagues. Her gifts to us will live on for a long time," Superintendent of Schools Steve Rioux said in a statement.

Massachusetts State Police said the accident is still under investigation.
