THIBODAUX, LA (WVUE) -

A stabbing victim tried to drive himself to the hospital and crashed his car into a ditch. 

Investigators say they've now arrested the man they believe was responsible, Lawrence Davis, 39 of Raceland. 

Lafourche Parish Deputies and Louisiana State Police responded to the crash on Highway 1 in Thibodaux Thursday (Nov. 12) night. 

Investigators say the victim got into an argument with Davis, one of two passengers in his car as he drove in the Thibodaux area.

They say the victim pulled over and both men got out of the car. That's when investigators say Davis stabbed the victim and took off on foot. 

The wounded man lost consciousness and crashed while trying to get to the hospital. 

Deputies tracked down Davis at his residence. They've booked him with aggravated second degree battery. His bond is set at $75,000.
