Father: Brennan broke ribs and collarbone, injured head in crash
Former Washington Redskins backup quarterback Colt Brennan and two women were seriously injured Friday in a two-car crash in North Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, police said.
Brennan's father, Terry, told KITV-TV in Honolulu that his son suffered broken ribs, a broken left collarbone and head injuries in the crash. Terry Brennan said doctors didn't know the severity of the head injuries. Colt Brennan's agent, Ryan Tollner, said earlier in a statement that Brennan was transported to Honolulu for further medical treatment after being taken to Kona Community Hospital. Brennan's condition was serious, according to Tollner. Brennan, 27, was a passenger in an sport-utility vehicle driven by Shakti Stream when the 27-year-old Kona woman crossed the centerline on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near Makalawena and collided head-on with a sedan driven by a 47-year-old Waikoloa woman, police said. Stream also was taken to Kona Community Hospital. The unidentified woman was transported to North Hawaii Community Hospital. Police opened two negligent injury investigations. The cause of the crash was under investigation, and it wasn't known if speed, alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash, police said. Hawaii associate head coach Rich Miano told KGMB-TV and KHNL-TV that the team would be thinking of Brennan when it hosts San Jose State at Aloha Stadium on Saturday. "For years, we've known Colt Brennan -- all we've seen is triumph and victories, record-setting and smiles, always saying the right things, just positive things for the state of Hawaii," Miano said. "So this is obviously kind of a sad event." Brennan, who finished third in the voting for the 2007 Heisman Trophy while at the University of Hawaii, was the Redskins' 2008 sixth-round draft pick. He was released by the Redskins before the start of training camp this year. He then was signed and later released by the Oakland Raiders, and last month, he had a workout with the Houston Texans. While at Hawaii, Brennan became the NCAA career leader in touchdown passes, throwing 131 from 2005 to 2007. Brennan developed a solid fan base in Washington despite never playing in a regular-season game in two seasons. He spent 2009 on injured reserve after hip surgery, then had knee surgery in March, which set him further back.
