'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.

Multiple injuries were reported Thursday evening after two vehicles and horse were involved in an accident along Route 119 and Ranch Road, not far from the ongoing Fayette County Fair.

A dispatcher with Fayette County 911 said a medical helicopter was requested shortly after the 10 p.m. accident, and would land at the nearby Joseph A. Hardy Connellsville Airport.

First responders reported one person was sitting against a guide rail with leg injuries.

One person was being taken by ambulance to Uniontown Hospital with minor injuries, the dispatcher said, while other occupants of the vehicles were refusing medical treatment.

The dispatcher was unsure if the horse had wandered away from the fairgrounds, where large farm animals are among the exhibits. The animal was reportedly killed in the accident.

Firefighters from Dunbar and Morrell volunteer fire departments responded to the scene, along with Uniontown state police, the dispatcher said.

Further details were not immediately available.
