TOWN OF TRENTON — A husband and wife were hospitalized after a two-vehicle collision on Korber and Thompson roads on Saturday.

Sheriff’s deputies said Kenneth Jeffers, 62, of Floyd, was eastbound on Korber at about 12:40 p.m. when his 2014 Hyundai Tucscon was struck in the intersection by a 2017 Toyota Tundra, coming off Thompson Road. The intersection is controlled by a pair of stop signs on Thompson Road.

Deputies said Jeffers and his wife, 62-year-old Marlene Jeffers, suffered minor injuries to their heads and backs. They were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Hartford. The driver of the Tundra, Andrea Metz, 43, of Rome, was ticketed for failure to yield, authorities said. Metz is scheduled to appear in Town Court.
