'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 speeding motorist who appeared to be intoxicated traveled about eight miles the wrong way on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Donegal before being stopped, state police said Friday night.

Motorists began calling state police at 8:52 p.m. about the car traveling west in the eastbound lanes. The car was stopped six minutes later by turnpike maintenance workers, state police said. It was not immediately known how the man was stopped.

There were no reports of any crashes because of the incident. The man was taken by police for drug and alcohol testing.
