'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 women were treated at two Pittsburgh hospitals after separate one-car crashes Sunday in Sewickley and Unity townships.

State police in Greensburg said Deanne M. Smith 25, of West Newton was in fair condition at Allegheny General Hospital after a 10:30 p.m. accident along Herminie-West Newton Road, while Kayla M. Garland, 19, of Pleasant Unity was released after she was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital with multiple injuries after a 7:48 a.m. accident along state Route 2017 near Pleasant Unity.

Smith was traveling south when she was ejected from her 2007 Scion after her vehicle ran off the right side of the road and traveled up an embankment on the other side before hitting a small tree and flipping over on its roof.

Police said Smith was taken to Allegheny General Hospital by Sewickley Township Emergency Medical Services.

Garland was released earlier this week after she was treated for injuries suffered Sunday morning just north of Greensburg-Mt. Pleasant Road in Unity, police said.

State police said the crash occurred when Garland's 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the centerline, drove off the west berm and struck a tree. She was flown to the hospital from the scene.
