HONOLULU -- Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan has been released from a Honolulu hospital more than a week after an accident that left him with broken ribs and injuries to his head and collar bone.


Brennan issued a statement saying he was leaving Queen's Medical Center on Saturday and is headed to his parents' home in Southern California to continue his recovery.

Authorities say Brennan was a passenger in an SUV that crossed a highway centerline and collided head-on with a sedan driven by 47-year-old Theresa Wang on Nov. 19.

The 27-year-old Brennan said in the statement that he goes home with a "heavy heart" because Wang remains hospitalized.
