‘Bird Box Challenge’ leads to crash, possible charges for Utah teenager

"Bird Box Challenge while driving.predictable result", the police tweeted on Friday, along with a photo of two mangled cars on Layton Parkway surrounded by snow-covered sidewalks.

A blindfolded teenage driver in Utah crashed into another auto for obvious reasons on Monday, according to the Layton Police Department.

The "Bird Box Challenge" is when those who play attempt to perform normal tasks while blindfolded, as some of the characters must do in the movie. No injuries were reported.

"Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE", Netflix tweeted January 2.

What is the "Bird Box Challenge"?

Layton Police said that a 17-year-old girl was driving down Utah's Layton Parkway on Monday when she made a decision to cover her eyes with her beanie to participate in the so-called "Bird Box Challenge" and immediately lost control of her grey truck.

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

He said it was a warning he never thought he would have to give - don't drive while blindfolded.

Not that anyone needed a real-world example of what can go wrong when you take up the Bird Box challenge, but a Utah teen reportedly has crashed her vehicle after trying to channel her inner Malorie Hayes. But she may face reckless driving charges after she and a 16 year-old passenger allegedly pulled their beanies over their eyes and attempted to drive down a local highway.
