Driver who crashed while blindfolded was participating in ‘Bird Box Challenge’ Teen crashes in Layton while doing 'Bird Box' Challenge

Layton police in Utah responded to a crash Monday because a driver covered her eyes while driving.

Layton Police spokesman Lt. Travis Lyman told CBS News that a 17-year-old girl was driving with a 16-year-old passenger at the time of the crash.

And the "Bird Box" challenge involves people blindfolding themselves and trying to live life normally.

The latest nominee for the Darwin Award comes from a teen that drove on a highway in Utah with her beanie hat pulled over her eyes.

According to KUTV and the Layton police department, she soon careered into the other lane and hit another auto, a light pole and a sound wall.

What is the "Bird Box Challenge"? One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded.

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

"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.

Authorities are asking the city attorney to charge the teen girl with misdemeanor reckless driving, the Standard-Examiner reported.

"Bird Box Challenge while driving... predictable result", the department stated. Netflix even issued a warning about the challenge in a tweet, saying, "Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE".

Earlier this month, Netflix warned viewers not to replicate the movie, in which a mother and her children wear blindfolds to escape a sinister force that turns anyone who sees it suicidal.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash.
