Ex College Football Star: The Horrific Crash Photos

11/20/2010 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former University of Hawaii star Colt Brennan has been upgraded to stable condition this morning -- which is a borderline miracle when you see the gruesome photos TMZ has obtained of his car accident yesterday.

Brennan was the passenger in a vehicle being driven by his girlfriend when it collided head-on with another vehicle. The photos above were taken just moments after the crash, before paramedics arrived on scene. Brennan was still inside the vehicle at the time.

Brennan suffered broken ribs, a broken left collarbone, and head injuries. His girlfriend reportedly suffered a broken collarbone, while the driver of the other vehicle suffered leg injuries.

Brennan finished third in the Heisman voting in 2007 and holds numerous NCAA records -- but he never quite made it in the NFL and was cut from the Oakland Raiders back in September.

Sounds like someone was gazing off at the scenery and lane drifting. I've seen this kind of thing many times. Tuning the radio, looking something off to the side and a 16 year old girl damn near killed my husband texting.

Texting kills. Who is dumb enough to think you can type will driving a car?

GUYS - NEVER NEVER NEVER LET A CHICK DRIVE - NEVER.
If you are blind stinking drunk, call a cab so a man can drive you home.
Ask Nick Adenhart about letting a chick drive - oh wait, you can't, she got him killed.

#8 what a stupid comment. I'm sure you're a dumbas* irl also. From wiki:

Shortly after midnight on April 9, 2009, Adenhart was involved in a car crash in Fullerton, California, just hours after being the starting pitcher in the previous night's game. Police reported that an individual driving a red Toyota Sienna minivan ran a red light and broadsided the gray Mitsubishi Eclipse Adenhart was a passenger in, sending it crashing into a telephone pole.[3][30][31] Courtney Stewart and Henry Pearson, the driver and another passenger of the Mitsubishi respectively, were pronounced dead at the scene.[31] Adenhart and Jon Wilhite, the third passenger in the Mitsubishi, were taken to University of California, Irvine Medical Center, where Adenhart died as a result of his injuries.[30] Wilhite suffered an internal decapitation and survived the crash after undergoing a five-hour surgery to reattach his skull six days after the accident.[32]

The minivan driver fled the scene on foot, but was later apprehended and identified as Andrew Thomas Gallo.[1] On May 27, 2009, Gallo was indicted by the Orange County grand jury on three counts of murder, one count each of felony hit-and-run, driving under the influence and causing injury, and driving with a .08 percent blood alcohol or higher and causing injury and death.[33] Gallo had a blood alcohol content of .19 percent two hours after the crash, and was also driving with a suspended license.[33] On June 8, 2009, Gallo entered a not guilty plea at his arraignment.[34] After a two week jury trial held in September 2010, Gallo was convicted on three counts of second-degree murder, two counts of driving under the influence causing great bodily injury, and one felony count of hit-and-run.[35] A bench trial found Gallo guilty of driving on a suspended license.[36] A sentencing hearing is scheduled for December 10, 2010, where Gallo faces a 51-year or life sentence.[35]

According to the local paper in Hawaii, his girlfriend, who was driving, says there was a malfunction in the car breaks (Colt was a passenger). My dad and I be wearing our Colt jerseys tonight at the UH football game tonight. My prayers to Colt, his girlfriend and the other woman who was injured. WE LOVE YOU COLT!!!

yup,our roads here on the Big Island of Hawai'i are THE MOST DANGEROUS in the nation. Our highways are NARROW and have NO BARRIERS, so every year dozens of dozens of people perish or are gravely injured or permanently disfigured or mentally traumatized driving our roads.

I really hope that Colt is able to recuperate and get back on the field again. As for his girlfriend Shakti, I know the investigators are looking into your claim of brake failure... http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/20101120_brennan_2_women_injured_in_collision.html

And i hope the innocent 47-year old woman from Waikoloa who is now also at Queen's Hospital in Kona has a chance to regain her life. http://www.westhawaiitoday.com/articles/2010/11/20/local/local01.txt

OUR ROADS ON THE BIG ISLAND ARE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. NO ONE IS SAFE HERE DRIVING ON THESE ROADS! SENATOR INOUYE, SENATOR AKAKA, REP. HIRONO & REP. HANABUSA: PLEASE GET US $$$$$$$ TO ERECT BARRIERS / DIVIDERS ON THE DEADLY HAWAI'I BELT HIGHWAY!!!!!!!


BTW: According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the Big Island of Hawai'i is the #1 place for drunk driving crashes and drunk driving fatalities: http://www.madd.org/

Menehune Action News    

Hundreds of people throughout Hawaii are talking about Shakti Stream. People that know her have a torrid story about this beautiful woman. unstable, heavy drinker, with a short temper. Colt was spotted Halloween night 2010 in Waikiki drinking bottled Beer at a bar called Big Kahuna's with a woman that may have been Shakti, However the height of the woman dressed as Pocahontas does not match the description of Ms. Stream. Was it ****ki? Was it a friend? ( Comments Welcome) The Highway in Kona where the accident happened was straight and the sun was at there back at the time of the accident. There is growing speculation that Ms. Stream started a huge fight with Colt over something that happened the night before at a party. Could this be a case of attempted SUICIDE/MURDER? or was it just an accident? Was texting involved? Only Colt and Shakti know the truth. Was the cooler with food and Lipton tea drinks also filled with alcohol? Will tox reports bring out the truth? Stay tuned for a day filled with speculation, lies, and the truth.
Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this horrible soap opera/accident.
Lets take this as a lesson for all of us, nothing is worth hurting yourself or other for. Behavioral research has proven each human has over 500,000 compatible partners on the planet, So, if its too hot in the kitchen, move on, there's 499,000 other kitchens to eat at.
