'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 North Side street that runs along Allegheny General Hospital is expected to remain closed until sometime Tuesday while workers repair a sink hole.

Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority crews said the sink hole, which opened only a relatively small hole in the pavement in the 1000 block of James Street, is actually about 10 feet deep and nearly 20 feet long.

It appears the hole was caused by the collapse of a storm drain.

A private contracting crew was summoned to excavate the street and make the necessary repairs. James Street remains blocked between East North Avenue and Knoll Street.
