'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

U.S. auto safety regulators are investigating complaints that a rear suspension part can fail on the iconic Dodge Viper muscle car.

The investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covers about 2,500 Vipers from the 2005 and '06 model years.

The safety agency says a rear suspension connector may break while the car is moving, causing drivers to lose control.

The agency has reports of two crashes and one injury.

Investigators will check to see if the problem is bad enough to issue a recall.

Chrysler says it's cooperating in the probe and says owners should take their cars to dealers if they have concerns.
