'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 Fayette County man died when he sped out of control and crashed his car into a fence and a parked truck late Thursday night in North Union.

Duane E. Halfhill, 43, of Lemont Furnace, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 11:45 p.m. accident along Coolspring Jumonville Road.

State police in Uniontown said Halfhill was speeding when he lost control of his Chevrolet Lumina on a curve in the road. His car left the road, striking a fence and a parked bread truck, police said.

The Fayette County Coroner's office said Halfhill died of blunt force trauma. The manner of his death is pending toxicology tests.
