'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 Penn Hills boy who was hit by a car while trick-or-treating Saturday night remained hospitalized in critical condition Monday, according to officials at Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville.

Edgewood police identified the boy as Robert Simmons.

Simmons, 5, was walking across the street near the corner of Linden Street and Maple Avenue in Edgewood when he was struck. He suffered a severe head injury. The driver of the car, a 26-year-old Edgewood woman, stopped after the incident. Police interviewed her but haven't released her name.

Allegheny County Homicide detectives are investigating the case. A detective working on the case could not be reached for comment.
