'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.

No one was injured this morning when a train struck a car hauler on the railroad tracks in Springdale.

Susan Terpay, a spokeswoman for the Norfolk Southern Railroad, said the accident occurred at 3:45 a.m. at a crossing near the intersection of James and Railroad streets. An eastbound train hauling 130 cars loaded with coal struck the truck, which was empty.

Work crews were able to reopen the track by 6 a.m.

Springdale police said they had no report available on the accident.
