Josh Lewis was making a delivery to a hospital when he was carjacked. The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that while being treated for stab wounds, he called the pizzeria for a fresh delivery.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. In 1912, Theodore Roosevelt was about to give a speech when a man shot him. Roosevelt gave the speech anyway. Louisville's Josh Lewis was just as determined. Someone at the hospital ordered pizza, and Mr. Lewis got the delivery order. Someone carjacked, robbed and stabbed him. He ended up in the hospital, but the Louisville Courier-Journal reports that while being treated, he called the pizzeria for a fresh delivery, finishing the job he started. It's MORNING EDITION.
