A blindfolded teenage driver in Utah crashed into another car for obvious reasons on Monday, according to the Layton Police Department.
“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.
One truck appears to have its passenger-side bumper bent inward, while the entire driver’s side of a Honda HR-V is smashed. The side airbags of the HR-V appear to be deployed.
“Luckily no injuries,” police wrote.
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.
The “Bird Box” challenge, which has gone viral on social media, is inspired by the Netflix movie “Bird Box,” starring Sandra Bullock. In the movie, characters have to move about the outside world wearing blindfolds to avoid looking at an unseen monster that forces people to kill themselves.
In the viral challenge, participants attempt to do ordinary things while blindfolded, which, again, is dangerous for obvious reasons.
