HONOLULU (HawaiiNewNow) - The family of a 47-year-old Big Island woman who suffered life-threatening injuries during a car crash with Colt Brennan and his girlfriend Nov. 19 in North Kona has filed a lawsuit seeking damages for medical expenses.

Attorney Ian Mattoch filed the suit against 27-year-old Kailua-Kona resident Shakti Stream on behalf of Theresa Wang on Dec. 30 in 3rd Circuit Court.

The lawsuit seeks special and general damages for the costs and interest accrued since the accident.

Wang has been transferred from The Queen's Medical Center to the Craig rehabilitation hospital in Denver which specializes in brain and spinal cord injuries.

Police are continuing to investigate the crash but have not filed any charges in the case.

Wang was driving a car that was struck head-on by a sports utility vehicle driven by Stream. Stream's boyfriend, former University of Hawaii and NFL quarterback Colt Brennan, 27, was a passenger in the SUV, according to police.

Brennan and Wang were flown to Oahu for treatment while Stream was taken to Kona Community Hospital, where she was treated and released. Brennan was released from the hospital on Nov. 27.
