LIMA — The executive director of a local senior care facility and the mother of a backup quarterback for the Denver Broncos was killed Monday in a traffic crash on a slick road.

Carla M. Dysert, 56, of Ada, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in the 9200 block of state Route 81 near Napoleon Road, Allen County Sheriff Chief Deputy Jimmy Everett said.

The crash happened at 8:42 a.m. when 30-year-old James R. Britt, of Ada, lost control of his vehicle while traveling east on state Rout 81. Britt’s vehicle slid sideways, crossed the center line into the path of Dysert’s westbound sport utility vehicle, Everett said.

Britt was taken to St. Rita’s Medical Center to be treated for his injuries. No information was available on his condition Monday.

Another westbound car was struck by Britt’s vehicle when the driver swerved to try to avoid the crash. That driver, Kayla Dodds, of Lima, was not injured, Everett said.

The crash was under investigation and no charges had been filed Monday, he said.

Dysert has been the executive director at Primrose Retirement Community on West Elm Street since January 2005. Her son, Zac Dysert, is a quarterback on the practice squad for the Denver Broncos.
