Former U.H. quarterback, Colt Brennan, was airlifted to the Queen's Medical Center on Oahu this afternoon following a two-vehicle crash on the Big Island this morning.

Brennan arrived on Oahu just before 4 p.m.

Brennan's father, Terry, says his condition is non-life threatening but he did suffer 3 to 4 broken ribs, a broken clavicle and there was head trauma.

A spokesperson from the Queen's Medical Center says, "Colt Brennan was admitted to The Queen's Medical Center on Friday, November 19, 2010 and remains in serious condition.  The Brennan family appreciates the thoughts and prayers of his many fans and supporters."

The crash happened around 9:30 a.m. on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near the 90 mile marker.

Big Island police say Brennan was the passenger in the vehicle. 

His girlfriend, Shakti Stream, was the driver of the 1997 Toyota SUV.

Police say Stream crossed the center line and collided head-on with a 1996 Saab sedan that was headed south on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near Makalawena.

Brennan and Stream were initially transported to North Kona Community Hospital in serious condition.

The 47-year-old driver of the other vehicle is identified as a Waikoloa woman. 

She was also taken to North Hawaii Community Hospital in serious condition. 

Police have opened two negligent injury investigations. 

The exact cause of the crash is under investigation. 

It is unknown if speed, drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

Brennan's agent Ryan Tollner released this statement:

"We have been informed that Colt was injured as a passenger in car accident this morning on The Big Island of Hawaii. 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. "
