Dr. Theresa Wang, a Big Island family care physician, is slowly recovering from serious injuries she suffered on Nov. 19 in a head-on collision that involved former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan, Wang’s husband said today at the Queen’s Medical Center.

Wang is unable to speak because of a breathing device in her throat, but has regained consciousness and can nod her head slightly in response to "yes" and "no" questions, said her husband, David Chen.

She suffered four or five broken ribs, fractures to both arms and legs, multiple fractures to her neck, brain swelling and had been in a coma after the accident, said Dr. Caesar Ursic, Queen’s medical director of trauma services.

Wang’s HMSA insurance will not cover other expenses, such as rehabilitation, medevac flights and Chen’s mounting costs since he moved to Honolulu following Wang’s crash, Chen said.

Chen anticipates the un-reimbursed costs will rise to the tens of thousands, if not $100,000 or more.
