Since Wyndham Street reopened earlier this month, I have several times heard that a Guelph Fire Department fire truck got stuck under the rail bridge, and that the road had to be regraded and repaved to allow more clearance.
Today I finally remembered to ask Shawn Armstrong, general manager of emergency services, whether that had happened.
"Completely untrue," Shawn emailed back. "It is a rumour."
It is not clear how the stuck truck rumour got started, but Armstrong noted he has been hearing it as well.
