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

USA police in the state of Kentucky have found some humour after an empty doughnut truck caught fire.

The department posted an image of officers mourning the loss of the truck with the caption, "No words".

The driver of the Krispy Kreme donut truck noticed smoke billowing from his vehicle in south-east Lexington on New Year's Eve.

"No words", the officers wrote.

And while the driver was able to safely escape before fire crews arrived and flames engulfed the truck, the doughnuts didn't make it.

The investigation into the fire is ongoing as the cause is unknown. The post was shared thousands of times with commenters saying, "Stay strong", and "Condolences".

Police forces and sympathisers around the USA were quick to offer condolences to their fellow officers in Lexington. "We hope you like sprinkles".
