BRETZVILLE — The damage was minor in a passenger car-versus-pickup truck collision late Monday afternoon at the Bretzville Junction.

Harker slowed for traffic and, when he did, his truck was rear-ended by a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Robert E. Jones, 20, Ferdinand, according to the sheriff’s department.
