SHELBY COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – A man who was stabbed multiple times was dropped off near a grocery store, according to police.
Spencer County police confirmed that around 5 p.m. Wednesday they responded to a report of a stabbing near the Elk Creek Grocery.
"It is God's country and everything's usually peaceful and quiet," said witness Lanny Hollar with the Elk Creek Grocery store.
"I was sweeping right here and where the wet spot is where the car pulled up and I thought the guy was sick and was going to vomit but half his body was hanging out and he was hollering for help," Hollar said.
John Denney also came running to help.
"I came here and he fell out and I grabbed him and was trying to keep him upright and he said he was in so much pain so we just squatted him down and he just kept crying help me I've been stabbed," Denney said.
Witnesses say the man fell out of a car with a Colorado license plate.
"I started toward the vehicle and when I did they started pulling away and I was hollering for them to stop," Hollar said.
But the driver sped away. A viewer sent WAVE 3 video of all the commotion, as the victim was airlifted to University Hospital in downtown Louisville.
Witnesses say the victim was conscious as he was taken away, but the question remains who stabbed him and why, as well as why he was thrown from the car.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call Kentucky State Police at (502) 782-1800.
