'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 5-month-old girl and two Vandergrift women were briefly hospitalized on Tuesday after a three-vehicle crash on Route 56 in Allegheny Township.

Allegheny Township police say the crash occurred at 4:30 p.m. when a Ford F-250 truck heading toward Vandergrift struck a Chevrolet Impala turning onto Hyde Park Road from the other direction. After the impact, police said, the F-250 continued in the same direction and struck a Dodge Caliber waiting to turn right onto eastbound Route 56.

Lower Kiski EMS took all three of the Dodge Caliber's occupants to Allegheny Valley Hospital in Harrison where they were treated for minor injuries and released. The other drivers, neither of which had passengers, were not injured, according to police.

Emergency personnel closed both eastbound lanes of Route 56 from Hyde Park Road to Vandergrift for three hours as the vehicles were towed from the scene. Traffic heading into Vandergrift was detoured down Hyde Park Road and along La Belle Vue Road.

Allegheny Township police are investigating.
