PennDOT and state police shut down northbound Route 28 between the Route 8 interchange at Etna and the Highland Park Bridge for about an hour on Feb. 25, 2013 to allowed investigators to complete a reconstruction of the Feb. 16 crash that killed Rikki A. Fleming, 18, of Etna.

'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.
