TOWN OF MARCY — Both drivers were hospitalized after a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Mill Street and Route 291 Sunday afternoon.

Sheriff’s deputies said Malcolm Webb, 19, of Rome, was eastbound on Mill Street at about 6:40 p.m. when he failed to yield the right of way to a northbound 2016 Toyota at Route 291. Deputies said Webb’s 2008 Chevy pickup struck the Toyota, driven by Karen Fransman, 63, of Stittville.

Both Webb and Fransman were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Hartford, where they were treated for minor injuries, authorities said. Webb was ticketed for failure to yield. He is scheduled to appear in Town Court.
