'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 66-year-old Jeannette man died from injuries sustained in a vehicle crash Friday night.

A police report said the accident occurred in Hempfield Township at about 10:45 p.m. when a 36-year-old Mt. Pleasant man failed to stop for a posted stop sign and entered the intersection of State Route 119 and Forbes Trail Road. He collided with the other man's vehicle.

The Jeannette man was flown to Forbes Regional Hospital, where he later died, police said.

One passenger in the 36-year-old man's vehicle was flown to UPMC Presbyterian for treatment, and another passenger in the same vehicle was transported to Excela Westmoreland Hospital for treatment, police said.

Police are still investigating the accident.
