Blindfolded Driver Crashes Car While Doing ‘Bird Box’ Challenge

According to the Layton City Police Department, the unnamed 17-year-old and her 16-year-old passenger were driving down a major thoroughfare in town when the older teen decided it was the ideal time to play-act Bird Box.

The streamer previously issued a warning against participating in the "Bird Box Challenge", which involves performing often unsafe stunts while blindfolded.

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

The challenge prompted Netflix to issue a warning tweet on January 2.

On Friday morning, the Layton Police Department of Layton, Utah shared the images showing the aftermath of a auto crash in which one of the drivers was allegedly trying to drive with their eyes covered.

This week the same advice came from Layton police department.

The 17-year-old girl was said to have had a 16-year-old male passenger in the truck with her.

Police are recommending reckless driving charges in the case but it will be up to the County Attorney's Office to determine what charges, if any, are filed.

Police only began suspecting the Bird Box challenge after the driver she hit investigated the crash further and asked locals for any possible surveillance footage and shared his findings with officers, Lieutenant Lyman said.

For those that are unfamiliar with the concept, the challenge stems from the film as some people have decided that they should wear blindfolds and navigate their way around the world. "We don't know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl" - a reference to the two unnamed children of Bullock's character - "have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes".
