BOONVILLE — A 63-year-old driver was ticketed after a two-vehicle collision on Post Street Monday morning.

Sheriff’s deputies said Michael Sokoloff, of Boonville, was northbound when he made a wide turn onto Academy Street at 11:40 a.m. Deputies said Sokoloff failed to keep right in the turn and his 2012 Dodge Ram pickup truck hit a 2005 Ford Taurus, driven by Charles Halstead, 62, of Port Leyden.

Neither driver was seriously injured, authorities said, and Halstead was treated at the scene for some arm pain.

Sokoloff was ticketed for failure to keep right, deputies said. He is scheduled to appear in Village Court.
