The girlfriend of former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan who collided with a Waikoloa woman’s car nearly three years ago will not face charges from the crash, a Hawaii County prosecutor said today.

Shakti Stream was driving northbound on Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway when her Toyota 4Runner crossed the center line and collided with a southbound Saab about three miles north of Kona’s airport.

The driver of the Saab, Dr. Theresa Wang, sustained serious injuries in the Nov. 19, 2010 collision. She has since undergone numerous surgeries.

Stream will not be prosecuted because of a lack of evidence to prove charges of first-degree negligent injury, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Kimberly Taniyama said in a press release today.

In 2011, an attorney for Wang filed a lawsuit alleging Stream was driving in a “careless and negligent manner” when she crossed the center line.

Both Stream, 27 years old at the time, and Brennan, a passenger in Stream’s 4Runner, were treated at different hospitals and released.
