'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.

Emergency responders reported no life-threatening injuries in a Friday-morning crash along Universal Road.

Emergency crews were originally alerted for a report of a two-car accident on Universal near its intersection with Beech Road. Penn Hills Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief Bill Jeffcoat said responders found four patients, two of whom were trapped inside their car.

“EMS was able to force one of the doors open and got an elderly female patient out,” Jeffcoat said. “Another female, the driver, was entrapped.”

Jeffcoat said four people were transported from the scene for medical attention, but added there did not appear to be any life-threatening injuries.

The crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m.
