Christine Akusis of Winnetuxet Road, Plympton, said, “It was one of the scariest moments of my life” on her Facebook post Tuesday. She and her husband were out for an evening walk with their dog Ace on Monday when a silver truck sped down Elm Street in Plympton. When the driver saw the couple he swerved and lost control of his vehicle, according to neighbors, snapping the utility pole. Acting quickly, her husband threw Christine and Ace into the wooded roadside, out of harm’s way. He was hit and thrown by the truck according to witnesses, but is also going to be all right. Ace spent a hard night Monday night and was off to the vet Tuesday morning, according to Christine’s post. The young male driver who was on his way to West Street, was taken by Halifax ambulance to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth to be checked out. Plympton Police Chief Matt Ahl said that charges will be filed.
