A West Jefferson Couple died as their pickup truck ran off of NC 163 and overturned just after noon today.  The crash occurred when 69-year old Arvie Houck lost control of the 2000 Ford, running off the road to the right, then she pulled the truck too strongly back out into the road, then ran off to the right again. The couple was pinned in as the truck overturned off of the road, and by the time Ashe Rescue freed them, both were dead.  The state patrol identified Arvie Houck's husband as Bobby V. Houck, 72.  The 12:05pm crash occurred near the auto auction on NC 163.
