Carjacked delivery driver stabbed, with a punctured lung, ‘still managed to deliver the pizza’

A pizza delivery driver who became a carjacking victim set a new standard for devotion to duty Sunday when he managed to make the delivery despite a stabbing that left him with a punctured lung.

Fortunately, the delivery was to a hospital.

Deliveryman Josh Lewis, 25, was on a routine call to Norton Hospital in Louisville, Ky., about 2:45 p.m. when he was attacked after getting out of his car, according to

“It’s surreal. I can’t believe it happened to him,” said Willow Rouben, regional manager for Spinelli’s Pizza, where Lewis works. “As he was taking the pizzas out of his car and walking to deliver the pizza, he was stabbed in the back. Believe it or not, he got his pizzas delivered and collapsed in the ER.”

Lewis was rushed to University Hospital and into surgery with a collapsed lung, WLKY reported.

The carjacker, described only as a black man in his 40s, took off in Lewis’ black Jeep Cherokee, according to WLKY.

The pizza chain is working on a way to help Lewis and his family, according to WLKY.

“He’s just a sweetheart. He’s a sweet kid and we’re just so sad that this happened to him,” Rouben said. “Our hearts are broke. We just want him to be OK.”
