Krispy Kreme Kastastrophe

January 8, 2019

Police officers in Lexington, Kentucky said they had “no words” after a Krispy Kreme truck fire sent dozens and dozens of delicious donuts up in a smoke on New Year’s Eve.

In a now-viral tweet posted last Monday, the cops can be seen “grieving” at the scene of the tragic donut accident, and well, we can’t blame them.

The incident occurred around midday on December 31, 2018. The Krispy Kreme truck’s driver noticed smoke coming from the vehicle and immediately called 911, according to a local news report. He was able to safely escape the blaze, but his payload of Krispy Kreme donuts was not so lucky.

It’s unclear how many donuts were lost in the mysterious fire, but any squandered sugary treat is a tragedy. The Lexington Police Department shared their devastation online, posting photos of forlorn patrolman burying their faces in their hands and frowning in front of the blackened truck of extra crispy Krispy Kreme donuts.

The laughable display from the Lexington Police Department earned them some free donuts, courtesy of Krispy Kreme. The donut dealers said they planned to have fresh donuts delivered to the station on Tuesday.
