'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.

The driver of an SUV died when he crashed head-on into a tractor-trailer on Tuesday morning, according to authorities.

Justin Randall Johnson, 26, of McKinleyville, Calif., was heading south on Henderson Avenue (Route 18) around 10:30 a.m. when his Jeep crossed the center line and hit the rig, said Washington County Coroner Tim Warco.

Warco pronounced Johnson, who was alone in the vehicle, dead at the scene from multiple blunt force trauma.

The truck driver suffered minor injuries. Chartiers police are investigating.
