HONOLULU -- Former Washington Redskins backup quarterback Colt Brennan was released from the hospital Saturday, more than one week after a car accident that left him with broken ribs and injuries to his head and collarbone.
Brennan issued a statement saying he was leaving Queen's Medical Center and is headed to his parents' home in Southern California to continue his recovery.
Authorities say Brennan was a passenger in an sport-utility vehicle that crossed a highway centerline and collided head-on with a sedan driven by 47-year-old Theresa Wang on Nov. 19.
Brennan, 27, said in the statement that he goes home with a "heavy heart" because Wang remains hospitalized.
Brennan said his girlfriend, Shakti Stream, is close to a full recovery. Stream was the driver of the SUV.
