Teen crashes vehicle after driving blindfolded for Bird Box challenge

Driver who crashed while blindfolded was participating in ‘Bird Box Challenge’

'Bird Box Challenge while driving.predictable result, ' Layton Police wrote in a tweet that included pictures of the two cars involved in the crash.

A teenager has crashed her vehicle while covering her eyes as part of the so-called Bird Box challenge.

Inspired by the Netflix movie Bird Box (in which a blindfolded Sandra Bullock walks around trying not to see a scary monster), the Bird Box Challenge falls somewhere between a marketing meme and the knockout game.

He said the girl was driving down Layton Parkway with a 16-year-old passenger when she blindfolded herself by pulling her beanie down over her eyes. If you haven't seen the movie, the gist is the world is plagued by supernatural beings that will compel anyone who sees them to kill themselves.

No one was injured in the crash - a relief to Netflix, which earlier this month issued a warning to fans of the film to lay off the blindfold stunts.

"Luckily no injuries", police wrote.

Authorities are asking the city attorney to charge the teen girl with misdemeanor reckless driving, the Standard-Examiner reported. They reportedly called out the Bird Box Challenge specifically.

When the movie first came out, Netflix gave a clear warning to viewers to not try the unsafe challenge.

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.

The 17-year-old driver, her 16-year-old passenger and the occupants of the other auto all escaped serious injury.

Unsafe stunts made popular on social media have been taking lives for years.
