[Ed. – Prayers go out to the family.]
Fox News anchor Bret Baier and his family were in a car accident while vacationing in Montana on Monday, which CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert described as serious.
“We just found out that he and his family were in a car accident in Montana,” Colbert said, referring to Baier, who was scheduled to be a guest on CBS’s “The Late Show.” “Bad, like, jaws of life to get him out of there.”
“They’re all in the hospital but they’re going to be OK,” he continued. “And we just want to say: We hope you’re doing better.”
“Bret’s message to everyone out there is: They’re going to be OK, thank you for your thoughts and prayers for him and his family, and please, wear your seatbelt,” Colbert added. “It makes a difference.”
Baier, 48, who has a wife and two sons, released a statement on Monday night to describe the accident and to thank those who helped him and his family get to the hospital quickly. Baier is expected to be back on the air Tuesday evening.
