'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 tractor-trailer knocked down a utilty pole on Mount Washington and shut down a street early Friday morning.

Pittsburgh police said the driver of the tractor trailer hit a Verizon utility poile while trying to make a left-hand turn at Grandview Avenue and Bigham Street about 2 a.m.

Verizon workers replaced the pole about 11:30 a.m. and the street was reopened by mid-afternoon, police said.
