COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Emergency officials say a man was stabbed multiple times in the arm by a passenger in his car as he was driving down a road in Colleton County.

The Colleton County Fire and Rescue Department says the incident happened at 1:57 p.m. on Highway 64 near Horseshoe Creek in Round O.

According to authorities, the man's vehicle was traveling eastbound when a female occupant began stabbing him in the right arm with a knife during a domestic altercation.

"The man was bleeding profusely from multiple deep wounds when he exited the car," read a report by CCFR."A large amount of blood was found in the highway."

Emergency officials said the victim had received multiple serious stab wounds.

Authorities say several motorists stop to assist him, including a physician and an off-duty paramedic who all controlled his bleeding until Fire-Rescue arrived.

Firefighter-paramedics bandaged his wounds and started IVs prior to transporting the man directly to the trauma center at MUSC in Charleston.

The sheriff's office is investigating the incident.
