FOX News anchor Bret Baier and his family were involved in a serious car accident while departing from a ski vacation in Montana Monday morning, FOX News reports.
Baier released a statement Tuesday, explaining that they were driving to the airport in icy conditions when the car flipped over. Baier, 48, his wife, Amy, and their young sons, Paul and Daniel, were taken to a hospital but have since been released.
“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.

FOX reported that Baier said a passing motorist, named Zach, stopped to help the family before first responders arrived. The anchor noted the importance of always wearing a seat belt and said the family left the hospital “banged up, but alive.”
The news was first shared Monday night on “The Late Show,” where Baier was scheduled to appear Tuesday night with Stephen Colbert.
“We just found out that he and his family were in a car accident in Montana,” Colbert said, telling the audience that Baier and his family were going to be OK.
Many people tweeted support for Baier and his family.
God bless you and your family.
