LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- 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 is in stable condition and recovering from a collapsed lung at the University of Louisville Hospital. Police say Lewis was delivering a pizza from Spinelli's Pizzeria when a man stabbed him in the back, robbed him and stole his black Jeep Cherokee on Sunday.

The pizzeria's regional manager says Lewis called the restaurant to ask co-workers to make the delivery that he was interrupted while making to Norton Hospital emergency room.

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