'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 worker at Pittsburgh International Airport was seriously injured in an accident Tuesday night, airport spokeswoman JoAnn Jenny said.

The woman was operating a vehicle that pulls and positions planes on the apron around the terminal when the accident occurred at 8:56 p.m., Jenny said. Emergency personnel responded and took the woman to Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side.

Jenny said she had no information about the circumstances of the accident.

No planes or passengers were involved in the incident that occurred outside Gate D79 of the airside terminal, Jenny said.
