LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Metro Police are investigating the strange case of a man who was stabbed but still managed to drive himself to a gas station in the Buechel neighborhood.

Officers arrived around 4:30 Monday to see a red Cadillac parked at a BP gas pump, just a block from the Van Hoose Education Center. Somehow the driver made it even though police say he'd been stabbed as many as 14 times.

"I started on my way from work this evening, and I come in from the Best Western to go and come over and get the stuff I needed for the evening and started walking back across and saw all the Louisville Metro and everything going on and didn't know," said witness David Caudill.

Police say the man was stabbed in the parking lot of the Thornton's gas station on the corner of Bardstown Road and Goldsmith Lane. He drove his red cadillac about a mile away to the BP station on Newburg Road.

The BP clerk said the man is a regular customer and was bleeding when he came in when he asked to use the clerk's phone to call 911.

Police say two men attacked the victim at the Thornton's. He was taken to the hospital and police honed in on the Cadillac, where officers say they found a baseball bat inside.

The victim is in his early 30s and was taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made. If you have any information, you can call LMPD's anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD.
