800 Arkansans have 2009 tax return checks waiting for them

These are federal income tax refund checks that have been mailed out, but returned by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable. Almost all are from year 2009 tax return filings.

To receive their undelivered checks, people on the list need only contact the IRS with a current mailing address. This can be accomplished most easily online via the IRS Website.

Crash involving ambulance in Benton, everyone taken to hospital

Spokesperson Matt Brunley tells Today's THV the accident happened at the intersection of Highway 5 and Salem Road in Benton.

Witnesses on the scene say there was heavy traffic backed up, that's when the driver of the car pulled out of the lane and got onto the lane for opposite moving traffic in order to pass.

Brunley says the driver of the ambulance saw the car coming and swerved in order to avoid being hit head on.

Everyone involved in the crash was taken to a local hospital where they are being treated for minor injuries. Brunley says everyone is in stable and good condition and confirms the ambulance crew will be discharged.

The ambulance was responding to a call when the accident occurred.

A witness says they were in traffic for more than an hour because the road was blocked off while police investigated, cleaned the scene and waited for tow trucks to arrive.
