'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.

Two Somerset County men died in separate single-vehicle accidents Friday.

David Sutton Sr., 62, of Stoystown died in an 8:43 a.m. accident along Pompey Hill Road in Stonycreek Township, state police said. David Jeron Hostetler, 23, of Stoystown, perished in an accident along Route 281 North at an unknown time Friday, police said.

Sutton lost control of his Chevrolet Cavalier and slid broadside across the road and hit a tree head-on, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hostetler was speeding when he lost control of his Toyota Camry and slid off the road sideways into a tree, police said. Hostetler's vehicle rolled and hit several other trees before coming to a rest upside down, police said.

He also was pronounced dead at the scene of his accident.
