Cab driver stabbed in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police say two men repeatedly stabbed a cab driver near downtown Jacksonville.

The incident took place around 2 a.m. Tuesday shortly after the cab driver picked up the two men. Police say he was attacked while in his cab, which crashed into a guardrail.

The Florida Times-Union reports the suspects fled and police believe one of them may have been injured.

The cab driver was taken to the hospital in what was described at life-threatening condition. But police say his condition has been upgraded.

On Saturday, 43-year-old cab driver Stuart Carson was fatally shot in a robbery about two miles away. The newspaper reports the father of four had picked up his last fare and was planning on heading home when he was killed.
