Colt Brennan in Serious Condition Following Car Accident
Sources told KHON2 that Brennan was transported to a local hospital in serious condition, following a crash near the Kona Coast on Hawaii's Big Island. KHON2 reported, citing police sources, that the vehicle Brennan was in crossed over into oncoming traffic, where it collided with another vehicle. Brennan was reportedly the passenger in his car, which was being driven by his girlfriend.
The two other people apparently involved in the crash were airlifted from the scene. There was no immediate update on their conditions.
"We have been informed that Colt was injured as a passenger in car accident this morning on The Big Island of Hawaii," Brennan's agent, Ryan Tollner, said in a statement via Twitter. "He was taken to Kona Community Hospital and has since been transported to Honolulu for further medical attention. We do not know the severity of his injuries at this point, but that his condition is serious. We are not aware of the status of anyone else involved in the accident but our thoughts and prayers are with them. No details of the accident have been revealed to us. Colt's family asks that the public is respectful of the hospitals and medical staffs focused on treating the individuals involved in this accident."
Brennan, 27, was a sixth-round draft pick of the Redskins in the 2008 draft. He quickly became a fan favorite in Washington while backing up Jason Campbell and Todd Collins, but was never able to crack the Redskins' lineup. Washington waived Brennan in August, approximately two weeks after the oft-injured QB underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
Brennan then signed with the Raiders on Aug. 7, but they released him less than a month later after Brennan failed to beat out Kyle Boller for the team's No. 3 quarterback spot.
Houston worked out Brennan in mid-October but did not sign him at the time.
