Driver crashes trying 'Bird Box' blindfold challenge

A 17-year-old driver on Layton Parkway took the

No injuries were initially reported, Fox 13 reports.

"Bird Box Challenge while driving...predictable result". Police say the young woman in question had pulled her hat over her eyes while she was driving, which resulted in the crash.

Based on the hit Netflix horror starring Sandra Bullock, the social media challenge involves participants taking part in tasks while wearing a blindfold, emulating characters in the film who must evade sight-targeting monsters.

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.

Why are so many people dying in Canadian clothing donation bins?
One woman who lives in the area told CP24 she regularly sees people going through the donation bins at night. The company has been advising charities to remove those bars until safer designs can be implemented.

Fortunately, no one was hurt in the crash just north of Salt Lake City in Utah, US.

"It's just inexcusable to do something as risky as this, not only to yourself but everyone else on the road", said police Lt Travis Lyman, quoted by KSL.com.

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

The challenge "really hasn't been that risky, but inevitably somebody's going to do the monumentally stupid thing that is driving while blindfolded", a Colorado State Patrol officer said in a video message. Police are recommending charges of reckless driving.
