HOOVER, AL (WBRC) -

Police say a stabbing at a Hoover gas station ended with one man hospitalized and another sent to jail.

The stabbing happened at the Lake Crest Chevron on John Hawkins Parkway around 4:40 p.m. on Monday, Hoover Police Captain Gregg Rector said.

A 48-year-old man and a 66-year-old man pulled into the gas station around the same time. Hoover police are not releasing their names because no one has yet been charged in the case.

One caller said they believed the fight may have been sparked by road rage, but Capt. Rector said it was probably "as simple as one being impatient with the other at the gas pumps."

As the 66-year-old man started to fill up his car, the 48-year-old man pulled up and confronted him. Police said the men exchanged words and a physical fight broke out between them.

The 66-year-old man stabbed the 48-year-old man during the fight, Rector said. Both men were taken to the hospital.

The 66-year-old was released from the hospital with facial injuries around 10 p.m. Monday and jailed overnight. He was released from jail on Tuesday morning.

The 48-year-old stabbing victim is still at UAB Hospital. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.

A clerk at the gas station, Josiah Mumo, witnessed the altercation.

"It was scary because I've never seen that before. I been here for quite some years. But it was my first time seeing such a thing. This is a very quiet place, a very good place. This was my first time to witness that," Mumo said.

The District Attorney in the Bessemer cutoff will determine whether either man is charged in the case.
