CHICAGO (WLS) -- An Amazon delivery driver was stabbed on Chicago's South Side on Friday afternoon, police said.

Police said the stabbing happened in the Bronzeville neighborhood's 3000 block of South Michigan Avenue at about 3 p.m.

A 22-year-old woman was parked in front of a home, and her delivery truck would not start. Someone became upset that she was blocking the driveway.
