'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 Dawson man was charged after his car was hit by a train on Friday night in Lower Tyrone Township, according to a state police report.

Cullen J. Hribal, 39, drove around railroad crossing gates at River Road and School Road about 10:55 p.m. and off the edge of the roadway, becoming stuck on the railroad crossing, state police said.

An approaching train hit the car and pushed it down the railroad tracks about 50 feet, police said.

Hribal was charged with failing to obey a signal indicating an approaching train.

Hribal was not injured. The police report indicated the crash may have involved alcohol.
