Mother of Denver Broncos player killed in crash

HARROD — One person was killed and another injured this morning in a three-vehicle crash west of Ada.
Carla M. Dysert, 56, of Ada, was pronounced dead at the scene and James R. Britt, 30, of Ada, was injured in the 8:42 a.m. crash, according to the Allen County Sheriff’s Office.
The crash occurred when Britt, heading east on Ohio 81 near Harrod, lost control of his 1994 Mazda on the slippery road and slid over the center line and into the path of Dysert’s 2004 Buick sport utility vehicle, which was headed west, according to the sheriff’s office.
Britt was taken to St. Rita’s Medical Center, Lima, following the crash.
Kayla Dodds, of Lima, was driving behind Dysert and swerved to avoid the crash but was still struck by Britt’s car, according to the sheriff’s office. She was not injured.
Dysert is the mother of Zac Dysert, an Ada High School graduate who went on to play for the Broncos in the NFL. Zac Dysert is now part of the Bronco’s practice squad, according to the team’s website.
Carla Dysert was the executive director at Primrose Retirement Community in Lima.
The crash was under investigation Monday and no charges had been filed, the sheriff’s office said.
