Fox News anchor Bret Baier and his family are doing well after being hospitalized following a “major car accident” during a ski vacation in Montana.

Baier says the car he was driving flipped on Montana’s icy roads. He released a statement updating everyone on his condition:

“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. My advice to everyone is to always wear your seat belt 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.’”

Baier: Wear Your Seatbelts and Count Your Blessings

Comedian Stephen Colbert first broke the news on his show Monday night (Jan. 21).

“One of the news anchors for Fox News, Bret Baier, was supposed to be here tomorrow night (Jan. 22),” Colbert said. “We found out he and his family were in a car accident in Montana. Jaws of life had to get them out of there.”

Colbert added: “They’re all in the hospital. They’re okay. We just want to say we hope you’re doing better. We reached out to them. Bret’s message is they’re going to be okay, thank you for the thoughts for him and his family. And wear your seat belts. It makes a difference.”


Update: Bret Baier was back hosting his show on Jan. 22 and delivered an emotional, teary-eyed thank you.
