Former Redskins quarterback Colt Brennan is in serious condition in a Kona, Hawaii, hospital with possible head and back injuries after the car in which he was a passenger collided with another Friday afternoon, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

The accident occurred at about 10 a.m. (Hawaii time) on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near Makalawena Beach on the Big Island.

KHON of Honolulu reports that the Brennan's car crossed the center line and struck the other car head on. KITV reports that Brennan, 27, and a woman in his car were taken to Kona Community Hospital. A man and woman in the other vehicle were airlifted to North Hawaii Community Hospital. The second car overturned in the accident and caught fire, KITV reported.

"I'm making some calls right now," Terry Brennan, Colt's father, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Brennan, a record-setting quarterback at the University of Hawaii, was drafted in the sixth round by the Redskins in 2008. He was released in early August and had been spending time after being released by the Oakland Raiders in early September. He worked out last month with the Houston Texans. He has been plagued by hip injuries and has had surgery four times.
