'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 Charleroi toddler is recovering after being struck by a car Tuesday evening.

Christopher Jaquay, 3, of 204 Oakland Ave., is listed in good condition in Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Hospital officials did not release details of the child's injury, but police said the boy suffered a broken leg.

According to police, the boy was standing with family members on the sidewalk in the 200 block of McKean Avenue, around 8 p.m. The child's mother drove up and got out of the car to retrieve items from her car. The boy saw his mother and ran toward her, darting out into traffic and into the path of a car driven by Jennifer Brady, 29, of 838 Shady Ave., Charleroi.

He was flown by emergency helicopter to Children's Hospital following the accident.
