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

A teen driver attempting a new and unsafe fad inspired by a Netflix movie caused a crash earlier this week, Layton Police say. Now, it has reportedly caused a auto crash.

Lt. Travis Lyman, Layton Police, said the 17-year-old girl driving the pickup truck was with a 16-year-old boy when she made a decision to attempt the "Bird Box Challenge" and used a beanie as an impromptu blindfold.

The movie Bird Box has become a social media sensation since its, with viewers sharing hilarious memes about being blindfolded to avoid certain situations.

Layton police tweeted photos on Friday explaining the accident.

All you need to track any phone’s location is a small bribe
Your phone is essentially a tracker in your pocket, providing pinpoint accuracy on your whereabouts anywhere you take the device. For its part, T-Mobile told Motherboard it "does not have a direct relationship" with Microbilt, but admitted one with Zumigo.

Jake Paul's bird box challenge video has been taken off Youtube.

The driver then lost control and slid into the westbound lane, striking a white passenger vehicle and a light pole near 675 Layton Parkway, Lyman said.

Lyman says it should serve as a warning he never thought he'd have to give: Don't drive while blindfolded.

This viral challenge mirrors the premise of the Sandra Bullock-led horror that sees survivors utilize blindfolds to navigate a post-apocalyptic hellscape, lest they spot a malevolent force that turns its victims suicidal. "The stakes are just so high and it's just such a potentially risky thing as it is: to try and do it in that way is inexcusable". Police are recommending charges of reckless driving.
