'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 man struck by a vehicle in McKeesport has died.

The cause and manner of death of Carvelle Crosby, 45, of McKeesport, has not yet been determined, an Allegheny County Medical Examiner' Office official said on Saturday evening.

McKeesport emergency responders found Crosby underneath a champagne-colored Chevy Malibu on Friday around 10:30 p.m. along the 3300 block of Stockholm Street.

He was pronounced dead later that evening at 11:08 at UPMC McKeesport.

McKeesport assistant police Chief Tom Greene called the incident suspicious because witnesses told officers they heard screeches and saw a black SUV fleeing the scene.

Allegheny County police were called to reconstruct the accident scene, and county homicide was notified of the incident.

Anyone with information about the accident should contact McKeesport police at 412-675-5015.
