'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.

Police are investigating an accident in which a pickup truck rolled over repeatedly at the north on-ramp to Route 28 at Tarentum.

The truck's driver, Jason Brendlinger, 19, of Freeport was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh following the 2:05 p.m. wreck. A hospital spokeswoman, Jennifer Davis, said Brendinger is in fair condition.

State police said Brendinger got onto the ramp from Bull Creek Road and lost control on the curve. The 2000 Ford Ranger left the roadway, went into dirt and rolled over before coming to rest on its roof beside a pile of dirt and rocks. Debris from the truck bed littered the area from the rollover.
