Colt Update

KHON has several reports about the accident that injured Colt Brennan and two others. He's listed in serious but stable condition at Queen's Medical Center.
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."
KHON also gets reaction from family and friends as well as those who witnessed the accident and helped out in the immediate aftermath.
Damien Julius of Kona Transportation was one of the first people on the scene after Friday morning's two-vehicle crash. He says at the time no one knew one of the three victims was Colt Brennan.
"Was kind of like smoke across the highway," said Julius. "Had one car flipped over in the lava field and then there was an SUV on its side. We had to use our fire extinguishers from our trucks to douse the small kind flames from the vehicles."
Here's a report from Hawaii News Now.
Colt's father says he has yet to speak to his son.

"No, not really, other than the doctors and then before they put him on the Medevac helicopter. I think they were putting him under a little bit, they were giving him some more things to calm him," said Brennan.

Brennan's family was not able to catch a flight on Friday, but they will fly in from California Saturday morning.

Brennan's father tells Hawaii News Now the family is especially concerned about the two women hurt in the crash.
Here's KITV's report (w/video) and Stephen Tsai's article.
According to a source, Stream told police the brake malfunctioned, causing the vehicle to cross the center line and collide head-on with the Saab. A source said neither vehicle was speeding.

Stream suffered a broken collarbone and remained in the Kona Community Center overnight. She is expected to be released as early as today.

According to a source, Brennan, who appeared to be in shock, had to be restrained in order to be treated at the scene. He also was taken to the Kona medical center, where he underwent a CT scan.
Sounds like it could've been much, much worse. Thoughts and prayers go out to them and their families.
