Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan and two women were seriously injured in a two-car crash on Hawaii's Big Island.

Brennan's agent, Ryan Tollner, issued a statement saying Brennan was transported to Honolulu for further medical treatment after being taken to Kona Community Hospital on Friday. Tollner said Brennan's condition was serious.

His father, Terry Brennan, told KHON-TV by telephone from California that he suffered three or four broken ribs, a broken left collar bone, and head injuries.

The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu issued a statement saying Brennan had been admitted and was in serious condition.


Big Island 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.

While at Hawaii, 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 and was Washington's 2008 sixth-round draft pick. He was released by the Redskins before the start of training camp this year and was later let go by the Oakland Raiders. He had a workout with the Houston Texans last month.
