'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.

State police in Uniontown are seeking information on a hit-and-run driver who struck a pedestrian along the National Pike in Wharton Township Thursday afternoon.

Police said the pedestrian, Jacknuel Santos Rodriguez, 33, of Farmington, was treated at Uniontown Hospital after he was struck by a white Cadillac as he was walking east along Route 40 just west of Ranking Road.

The incident occurred about 2 p.m.

State police said the driver, a short, blonde female, was driving east when she crossed over into the westbound lanes and struck Santos Rodriguez, who was walking on the north berm. Witnesses reported that she briefly stopped after the collision, then continued driving east.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone police at (724) 439-7111.
