LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A pizza delivery driver who was carjacked, robbed and stabbed still managed to get the pizza delivered, calling the restaurant for a fresh pie while he was being treated in the hospital emergency room that ordered the food.

The Courier-Journal ( reports 19-year-old Josh Lewis was delivering a pizza from Spinelli's Pizzeria to Norton Hospital emergency room when a man stabbed him in the back, robbed him and stole his black Jeep Cherokee on Sunday afternoon.

The manager says Lewis, a college student from Detroit, is in stable condition and recovering from a collapsed lung at a different hospital.

A police spokesman says officers are still looking for the suspect and Lewis' truck.
