Fox News anchor Bret Baier and his family are lucky to be alive after being involved in a horrific car crash this Monday in Montana, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The TV star said in a statement that they were "banged up, but alive" following the "major" collision.
"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,"
Baier — who is also the executive editor of Special Report — he was driving to the airport after a ski trip with his wife and two boys when their vehicle slipped on the icy road.
"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," he continued.
Radar readers know Baier has been married to wife Amy since 2004. The two share two sons together: Paul, 11, and Daniel, 8. Luckily, all four of them received immediate treatment after the car crash, and have since been released from the hospital.
"We are very grateful to all of those who helped us out. My advice to everyone is to always wear your seatbelt and to count your blessings everyday," Baier, 48, added in his statement.
The host also tweeted after the life-threatening incident.
"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. #countyourblessings" he wrote.
