'Bird Box' challenge to blame for vehicle wreck in Utah, police say

12 January 2019

There were no injuries reported in connection with the crash.

A teenager thought it would be fun to play the "Bird Box Challenge" while driving blindfolded through a town in Utah.

The 17-year-old driver, her 16-year-old passenger and the occupants of the other vehicle all escaped serious injury.

The "Bird Box" challenge, which has gone viral on social media, is inspired by the Netflix movie "Bird Box", starring Sandra Bullock.

It remains unclear how she became trapped in the bin, but police believe the incident was unintentional. The company has been advising charities to remove those bars until safer designs can be implemented.

Following star Sandra Bullock's lead, the teen intentionally blindfolded herself on Monday afternoon while driving by pulling her beanie down over her eyes.

"This happened on Monday as a result of the driver covering her eyes while driving on Layton Parkway", Layton Police tweeted Friday.

What is the "Bird Box Challenge"?

"I nearly feel silly saying this", said Layton Police Lieutenant Travis Lyman.

Josh McDaniels says 'book is closed' on interviewing for open jobs
In 14 games, Rosen threw for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns but was far too risky with the football throwing 14 interceptions. Josh McDaniels may have lost out on the Packer job, but it's not all bad news for the Super Bowl Champion coordinator.

Police are screening a charge of reckless driving with the city attorney.

Videos of people trying to do things while blindfolded have attracted widespread attention online, and Netflix tweeted a warning about the challenge last week. Driving is one of the most inherently unsafe things we do, and this kind of willful disregard for the safety of others should be grounds for an immediate and long-lasting suspension, just like a DUI. No one was injured. "It really puts everybody at risk", 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.
