Colt Brennan's Head Injuries Not Life-Threatening, According To His Father

Though Colt Brennan is listed in serious condition with head trauma, broken ribs and a broken collarbone that resulted from a head-on car accident this morning, his injuries are not life threatening, according to his father. Brennan was a passenger in a car that crossed into oncoming traffic this morning in Hawaii, striking another vehicle.

After receiving all the care he could in a local Kona hospital, Brennan was flown to Honolulu for further care earlier this afternoon. The driver of the car was also transported to a local Kona hospital while the driver of the oncoming car was taken to North Hawaii Community Hospital.

Brennan’s father, Terry Brennan, spoke to a local TV station in Hawaiithis evening and relayed an update on Brennan’s injuries and the care he’s receiving in Honolulu.

“I talked to the doctor, the doctor from Kona,” Terry Brennan told KHON-TV. “He was saying ‘Hey, we’ve done our what we could do over here, we think it’s best he gets over to Oahu.’”

When asked if Colt Brennan’s injuries were life-threatening, Terry Brennan said, " No. … They’re still monitoring the issues with the head injuries."

As with any head injury, it’s still a very serious situation. Still, the fact that Brennan’s father is confident the injuries aren’t life threatening is good news. Brennan’s family will reportedly travel from California to Oahu early Saturday morning.
