Thankfully everyone is OK:

Baier reportedly tweeted this after leaving the hospital:
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

Baier later released a statement statement saying his family had left the hospital and was “banged up, but alive.”
Bret Baier and Brit Hume agree! Watch this woman attempt to put gas in her Tesla, because it's FREAKING HILARIOUS https://t.co/OMWphqeKtu
