A young man in Kentucky who was delivering pizza to a hospital was reportedly stabbed in the back and carjacked, but managed to deliver the food before collapsing in the emergency room.

Josh Lewis, 25, is a delivery man for Spinelli's Pizzeria in Louisville, who was on his way to Norton Healthcare with a food order at around 2:45 p.m. on Sunday. Shortly after reaching his destination, he was reportedly stabbed in the back by someone who had followed him there, reports Inquisitr. The male suspect then stole Lewis' jeep, according to police.

Meanwhile, Lewis continued to deliver the pizza and made it all the way to the emergency room, where he fell to the ground. He underwent surgery for a collapsed lung at the U of L Hospital and is currently listed as being in stable condition. He is expected to make a full recovery.

"It's surreal, I can't believe it happened to him," said Willow Rouben, the regional manager for Spinelli's Pizzeria, according to Inquisitr. "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."

Rouben told WDRB: "This is unusual. We take a lot of precautions about safety to our drivers. We take credit cards after 12 a.m. so they're not walking around with a lot of cash. So this is just ... I think it's just a carjacking."

Lewis is a student at Boyce College who is originally from Detroit.

Carey Klain, a spokeswoman for Louisville police, said authorities are searching for a male suspect who fled the scene in a black jeep Cherokee with gold racing stripes and light blue trim, reports the WAVE. The vehicle's Michigan license plate reads CDY6122.
