Driver crashed while participating in 'Bird Box Challenge'

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

What is the "Bird Box Challenge"?

Police in Layton, Utah, say a 17-year-old girl was driving blindfolded when she lost control and crashed into another vehicle.

After the crash, Layton police also took to social media to warn others from repeating the challenge.

The challenge is based on the hit Netflix movie starring Sandra Bullock where characters must constantly be blindfolded to avoid visions that urge them to commit suicide.

"Honestly, I'm nearly embarrassed to have to say 'Don't drive with your eyes covered, ' but you know apparently we do have to say that", said Travis Lyman of the Layton Police.

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

Netflix even issued a warning about the challenge in a tweet, saying, "Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE".

Layton police tweeted photos on Friday explaining the accident.

He said police had recommended the driver face a charge of reckless driving. She skidded into oncoming traffic, hit a vehicle and a light pole.

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

In the Netflix horror hit, which has inspired tons of memes and viral activity since its December 13 debut, Malorie (Sandra Bullock) resorts to blindfolding herself out of necessity (out of necessity, people!), in order to avoid any glimpse of the insanity-inducing evil menace that stalks her every step. "We don't know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes".
