    Fox News host Bret Baier and his family have survived a motor vehicle crash in Montana.

    In a statement released Tuesday, the anchor and executive editor of Fox News Channel's "Special Report" says that after a weekend of skiing he was driving to the airport on icy roads with his wife and their two sons on Monday morning when they were "involved in a major car crash."

    The 48-year-old says a passing motorist named Zach stopped and the family was able to climb out of the flipped vehicle.

    He says first responders got them to a hospital quickly, from which he says they left "banged up but alive."
