'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 Salem man was killed Monday in a one-vehicle accident in Murrysville. The Westmoreland County Coroners office identified the victim as David J. Seigh, 50, of Forbes Trail Road. Coroner Kenneth Bacha said Seigh was traveling west on Manor Road just after 3 p.m. when the 2002 Ford Taurus he was driving failed to negotiate a curve, left the roadway and struck a tree. Deputy Coroner Tim O'Donnell pronounced Seigh dead at the scene. The cause of death was attributed to blunt-force trauma to the head, neck and chest. The victim was not wearing a seat belt, according to an incident report. According to investigators, witnesses' accounts indicated speed may have been a factor in the crash. Murrysville police are investigating. Funeral arrangements were incomplete late last night.
