Ky. police cry over burnt Krispy Kreme truck; doughnut humor ensues

Officers with the Lexington, Kentucky, police department were eagerly awaiting the start of the new year when tragedy struck.

Lexington PD shared pictures on Twitter showing "devastated" officers, drawing sympathetic responses from other police departments.

Police in Kentucky found a humorous way to pay their respects to a fallen comrade: an empty Krispy Kreme truck that had caught fire.

The driver noticed smoke billowing out of the back and was able to get out of the vehicle safely with no injuries.

"No words", the officers wrote in a tweet alongside the photos, including a crying emoji.

Relatives of the Guatemalan boy who died in CBP custody speak out
Felipe "always wanted a bicycle" and their father saw the a way to help get their family out of poverty, Gomez Lucas said. Before Jakelin's death, no child had died in CBP custody in more than a decade, a Department of Homeland Security official said.

Police departments from across the country, including MA, reached out to express their condolences. "We donut know what else to say".

Here are a few more tweets from police departments who truly understand the gravity of this loss. "We hope you like sprinkles".

The investigation into the fire is ongoing as the cause is unknown.

Krispy Kreme tweeted back in amusing fashion as well, writing, "We're thinking of you during this hard time...and have more doughnuts on the way!"
