Hurts Donut has made a special "thin blue line" doughnut to raise money for the family of a Wichita police officer who was killed in a motorcycle crash while off-duty.

All of the proceeds from Tuesday's sales of the special salute doughnuts at the west-side location will go to the family of Officer Stacy Woodson, Hurts Donut said in a Facebook post. Woodson and his son, Braeden, were killed after a Friday crash involving a drunken driver, police said.

The "thin blue line" doughnuts are coated in black frosting with a blue stripe. Other doughnuts are marked with a "B" and blue sprinkles — Braeden's favorite color.

Woodson, 37, and a member of the motorcycle unit, was off-duty when riding a motorcycle east on 21st Street at around 8:15 p.m. on Friday, Sheriff Jeff Easter previously said. A southbound pickup on 167th Street West pulled out in front of Woodson.

Woodson was pronounced dead at the scene. Braeden, who was a passenger on the motorcycle, later died at a Wesley hospital.

The driver of the pickup, James Neal Dalrymple, 35, was arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter, aggravated battery from a DUI causing great bodily harm and driving under the influence, booking reports show. He was not injured.

Jail records show Dalrymple is no longer in the Sedgwick County Jail.

The west-side Hurts Donut is near 21st and Ridge.
