Blindfolded Utah Teen Crashes Car Doing The ‘Bird Box’ Challenge

Someone has officially failed the "Bird Box Challenge".

The department shared two photos on Twitter - the gray truck the 17-year-old girl was driving while blindfolded, and the white SUV she hit.

Lt. Travis Lyman told Fox13 that the 17-year-old female driver of the pickup truck was driving on the Layton Parkway with a 16-year-old male passenger when she made a decision to take part in the challenge and blind herself using a beanie.

"Bird Box Challenge while driving... predictable result", the department stated. She then skidded into the other lanes and hit another vehicle, a light pole and a sound wall.

Police in Utah say a teen participating in the latest viral challenge caused a crash.

Additional interviews later revealed that the teen was attempting the viral media challenge inspired by Netflix's hit December flick, Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, in which characters must cover their eyes to prevent themselves from going mad and killing themselves. There were no injuries, but she faces charges of reckless driving and both cars were significantly damaged.

Earlier this month, Netflix warned viewers not to replicate the movie, in which a mother and her children wear blindfolds to escape a sinister force that turns anyone who sees it suicidal.

Police say the young woman in question had pulled her hat over her eyes while she was driving, which resulted in the crash.

It's also - and I can't believe we're at the point where this actually has to be said - an incredibly unsafe stunt to pull off the in real world. But others might not be so lucky with such a unsafe stunt.
