I always suspected that the Warwick Blvd Krispy Kreme was the current site of my 30+ year family vet. The vet's address is 9804, but they long ago expanded into the former site of the Krispy Kreme at 9802. Notice the bump out on the right side of the building. I am convinced that this was the KK drive-thru.

Man dies after truck crashes into shop
By David Chernicky, Daily
Press, January 22, 2004
Shift supervisor Debbie Cox was dipping doughnuts in the back of the store, when she heard a loud bang, she said.
"I didn't know what was going on," she said.
Krispy Kreme has plans to demolish the building - where hot doughnuts have been sold for 38 years - to build a larger store on the same site. Construction could take five months.
The project was set to begin last year, but has been delayed several times due to small issues with the city, said David Lee, assistant manager for the doughnut chain. Lee said he didn't know what effect the crash would have on plans to build
a larger store.
Wilson recently had moved to Titus Creek Drive in Carrollton from Smithfield. He graduated from Smithfield High School
The pickup was eastbound on Mercury when Wilson apparently lost control, and the truck veered left across the median and continued across the four westbound lanes in front of Tommy's restaurant, according to police. The truck continued at an angle across the front lot of a Jiffy Lube shop, hit a concrete barrier and went into the air. It landed against the west side
of the Krispy Kreme store.
