'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 Washington Township man has died of injuries he suffered Monday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident in Indiana County.

Jesse Wayne Boyd, 22, died of blunt force trauma to the head. The coroner's report indicated Boyd died Tuesday at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he was taken following the 3:58 p.m. accident on Monday.

He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, the coroner's report indicated.

Another passenger in the Boyd vehicle, Zachary Bell, 21, is listed in fair condition in Allegheny General Hospital, where he was taken following the accident.

According to state police at the Indiana Barracks, a pickup truck driven by Mathew Henigin, 27, turned from Dean Street onto Route 119 southbound in Burrell Township, passing into the path of the car driven by Boyd. Boyd's car struck the side of the truck.

Henigin, who was wearing a seat belt, was not injured in the accident.

Addresses were not available for Bell or Henigin.

Boyd, who attended Belle Vernon Area High School with the class of 2010, was employed as a delivery driver for Domino's Pizza in Rostraver Township. He lived in the Fairhope section of Washington Township.

He was the son of Kimberly Burch Boyd of Belle Vernon and Kevin Boyd of Monongahela.

Boyd also is survived by his fiancee, Morgan Bell, their 5-month-old daughter, Izabella, three grandparents and four half-sisters. The Marshall Marra Funeral Home in Monongahela is handling arrangements. A complete obituary is on page A4.
