Brennan was transported to Honolulu for further medical treatment after being taken to Kona Community Hospital on Friday. Brennan’s condition is considered serious.
Doctors thought the change of hospital was best for Colt.
Brennan is said to have broken ribs, a broken left collarbone and suffered head injuries in the crash.
When asked if Colt Brennan’s injuries were life-threatening, Terry Brennan (his father) said, ” No. … They’re still monitoring the issues with the head injuries.”
Hawaii police say Brennan was a passenger in an SUV driven by Shakti Stream. They say she crossed the centerline on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near Makalawena in North Kona and collided head-on with sedan driven by a Waikoloa woman.
Stream was also taken to Kona Community Hospital, while the other woman was transported to North Hawaii Community Hospital.
Police said they had not determined the cause of the accident yet.
Colt Brennan was a college superstar who set all sorts of passing records. As a former degenerate gambler, I watched my good share of midnight Hawaii games with Brennan at the helm. And the boy did good for old Treez. If you like stats, Brennan became the NCAA career leader in touchdown passes, throwing 131 TDs from 2005-07. He finished third in the voting for the Heisman Trophy in 2007.
Colt’s pro career has been seriously bumpy. After being drafted in the sixth round by Washington in 2008, Brennan spent 2009 on injured reserve after hip surgery, then had knee surgery in March, which set him further back. He was released earlier this summer and later signed with the Oakland Raiders and was released before the season began.
I just want to say that I am pulling for you Colt. Nobody should have to die young.
