'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.

State police have determined that the woman critically injured Friday night when she was hit by a car as she lay in a roadway is from Fayette County.

Sarah Ankrom, 28, of Markleysburg was not carrying identification the night of the incident, police said.

Ankrom was flown by medical helicopter from the scene to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W. Va. Police said she was still at Ruby Memorial, but her condition was not available Sunday afternoon.

Police said the woman was lying on Route 40, known as National Pike, about a quarter-mile east of Newberry Road in Addison Township, Somerset County.

She was struck in the head and neck by the right front tire of a 2004 Chevrolet Impala, police said. Police said the driver will not be charged.
