'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 woman who was nine months pregnant and her unborn child died in a Beaver County car crash this morning and four other motorists were injured, one severely.

According to a state police news release, a car driven by Renee M. Todd, 35, of East Liverpool slid on ice around 7:30 a.m. on Route 30 in Hanover, and hit a car driven by a man, 34, from Clinton.

A female passenger, 35, in the man's car was killed, as was her unborn child, according to police. The driver suffered moderate injuries. One of his passengers, a girl, 11, suffered major injuries, while a boy, 15, suffered moderate injuries, police said.

None of the people in the man's car were wearing seat belts, police said. Todd, who had moderate injuries, was wearing her seat belt.

Police did not identify anyone in the man's car, and did not say where they were taken for treatment.

The Beaver County coroner could not be immediately reached.
