Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier and his family were in a severe car accident while vacationing in Montana over the weekend.
“After a weekend of skiing with my wife and two boys in Montana, driving to the airport Monday morning on icy roads, we were involved in a major car crash. Thanks to a man driving by named Zach who stopped and helped, we were able to climb out of the flipped car. And thanks to the first responders and Montana Highway Patrol – we made it to the hospital quickly. We are very grateful to all of those who helped us out," Baier released in a statement Tuesday morning. "My advice to everyone is to always wear your seatbelt and to count your blessings everyday. I tweeted this out as we left the hospital banged up, but alive. — ‘Don’t take anything for granted – every day is a blessing and family is everything. It’s always good to remind yourself of that before something does it for you.’”

The news of the crash was first announced by Late Show host Stephen Colbert Monday night. Baier was scheduled to be on his show tonight.
“We just found out that he and his family were in a car accident in Montana. Bad, like, jaws of life to get him out of there. They’re all in the hospital but they’re going to be okay. And we just want to say: we hope you’re doing better,” Colbert said.
We wish Bret and his family a healthy and speedy recovery.
Dear Bret, I hope you and your family are ok. Praying you’re all safe and sound. Love you, my friend. ??????— Janice Dean (@JaniceDean) January 22, 2019
