Fundraiser set up for Spinelli's delivery driver stabbed Sunday
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Coworkers are determined to raise dough for the pizza delivery driver who was stabbed and robbed Sunday. Josh Lewis, 19, was delivering a Spinelli's pizza to the emergency room at Norton Hospital when he was stabbed and robbed of money, keys, and his Jeep.
It happened Sunday afternoon outside the hospital.
A fundraiser goes through Wednesday, May 6, until 5 a.m. May 7 at the downtown Spinelli's location. The regional manager says 50 percent of all sales will go to Josh Lewis, to help buy him a new car.
Many of the workers there are donating their time, to help raise money for Lewis.
Norton Hospital is stepping up too, matching what the restaurant raises.
"His vehicle was carjacked, all his personal belongings were taken and so we're raising funds so he can get a new car." said Willow Rouben, Spinelli's regional manager. "With everything he's gone through, being car-less is salt on the wounds."
Lewis is still recovering at University Hospital where he has been treated for a collapsed lung. Police have not made any arrests, but investigators are looking for Lewis' stolen black Jeep Cherokee with gold racing stripes and light blue trim, with a Michigan license plate.
Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD tipline at 574-LMPD.
His coworkers plan to hand him a check Friday for a new car.
