'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.

Two 18-year-old girls were killed in a two-car crash Monday in Greene County.

Bethanie N. Orwig and her passenger, Holly L. Lowery, both of Nemacolin, died in the crash that occurred about 7:30 a.m. on Route 21 in Jefferson Township, between Waynesburg and Masontown.

The driver of the other vehicle, Shelvia J. Lough, 29, of Jefferson, was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., with major injuries, troopers said.

State police said Orwig was driving east when she failed to negotiate a curve and traveled into the westbound lane and collided with Lough's oncoming car.
