'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.

A 31-year-old Kittanning man died in a head-on crash on Route 422 in Indiana County on Tuesday night.

Indiana County Coroner Michael A. Baker said Brendon Scott Miller, of 725 Woodward Ave., Kittanning, died at the accident scene along Cunningham Road in Armstrong Township, Indiana County, at about 10:47 p.m.

State police said Miller was driving a westbound 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier that crossed the center line into the path of an eastbound 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by a 25-year-old Ashley Black of Indiana, Pa.

Black was taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital, Pittsburgh, where her unborn child died, according to an Allegheny County deputy medical examiner.

A 3-year-old girl in her car was in a child safety seat and suffered minor injuries, police said.

A spokesman for Black's mother, Kathleen Stancombe, said Black was out of surgery and was recovering.

Police said Miller and Black weren't wearing seat belts.

Tpr. John Matchik said police are still investigating why Miller's car crossed road.

“There were no brake or skid marks,” he said.Matchik said evidence shows Black apparently moved to the right in an attempt to avoid the collision.

After impact. Miller's car spun around and stopped facing across the lanes.

Black's car was pushed backward into the guardrail.
