'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 Salem Township woman has died after she was struck by a pickup truck Sunday while doing yard work at her home, authorities said.

Amy Kaufman, 41, of Slickville, died at 7:45 p.m. Sunday at UPMC Presbyterian hospital, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office.

Kaufman had asked a juvenile to back up a pickup truck to dump mulch while Kaufman was doing yard work about 5:30 p.m. Sunday, state police at Kiski said.

For an unknown reason, the youth lost control of the truck and it accelerated rapidly, striking Kaufman, police said.

Police did not identify the youth.
