(Newser) – And the pizza-deliverer-of-the-year award goes to Josh Lewis of Louisville, Kentucky, who got carjacked and stabbed ... and still delivered his order. The attack took place Sunday afternoon, and the Courier-Journal notes that the 19-year-old caught one big break—he was delivering the pizza to a hospital emergency room. "I can't believe he just walked in there, said, 'Hi, I'm from Spinelli's. I have a pizza delivery,' and then just collapsed. That's dedication," a manager for Spinelli's tells USA Today.

Lewis suffered a collapsed lung in the incident, and his assailant also robbed him and stole his Jeep Cherokee. The part-time employee was in stable condition, reports WDRB, which notes that he was stabbed outside the hospital where he was making his delivery. The pizzeria announced on Facebook that it was staging a fundraiser for him today. (Read more pizza stories.)
