The driver of the Krispy Kreme donut truck noticed smoke billowing from his vehicle in south-east Lexington on New Year’s Eve. Nobody was hurt in the resulting blaze, which was captured on video by a passing motorist.
While the fire was soon extinguished, nobody seemed to be more heartbroken than Lexington’s boys in blue.
