Colt Brennan

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Colt Brennan and his family.

Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan was hospitalized today with possible head and back injuries after being involved in a two-car accident on the Big Island, according to a UH coach.

Brennan was a passenger and is now undergoing a CAT scan.

Kona police said they responded to an accident on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near the 90-mile marker at about 9:30 a.m.

According to the Hawaii County Police department, the dispatcher received a call of an overturned vehicle just south of the Four Seasons resort. Police said no further information was available this morning because investigators were still at the scene.

The female driver of the other vehicle was taken to a hosptal in Waimea. Her car overturned in the accident.

Brennan’s father, Terry Brennan, said he had just heard about the accident from his wife, Betsy, and had no information.

“I’m making some calls right now,” he said.

Brennan has been spending time on the Big Island after being released by the Oakland Raiders this summer. Last month, he had an exploratory workout with the Houston Texans.

Brennan, a record-setting quarterback for the Warriors, was drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins in the 2008 National Football League Draft.
