Driver crashes trying 'Bird Box' blindfold challenge

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

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.

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

Police say the young woman in question had pulled her hat over her eyes while she was driving, which resulted in the crash.

Police told KSL that the driver, a 17-year-old girl, was driving the pickup truck seen in the photos above on Monday when the incident occurred. Luckily no injuries, ' the post continued.

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

The driver veered into oncoming traffic and struck a passenger vehicle.

The challenge has seen people being filmed doing a variety of every day things blindfolded, including walking into walls and down streets.

The unlikely craze saw Netflix warn the public not to copy the characters and embark on the challenge.

A 12-year-old USA girl gave herself burns to about 50 per cent of her body last year. Police say they are screening a reckless driving charge with the city attorney's office. The disingenuous tweet - Netflix claimed not to know how the "challenge" had started, despite seeding the hashtag #BirdBoxChallenge weeks before releasing the film - sparked predictable eye-rolling among the thankfully large segment of the population that realizes films aren't real, even if you watch them at home.

Lyman also warned drivers not to try the "Bird Box Challenge" for themselves: "With driving, the stakes are so high anyway that it's just inexcusable to do something as risky as this, not only to yourself but everyone else on the road".
