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

No injuries were initially reported, Fox 13 reports.

Police say the latest viral challenge is responsible for a crash on a street in Utah.

Well, we might be getting into an area where films that become pop-culture phenomenons require ridiculous warnings because just like the idea of sticking your head into a bee hive or swimming with sharks, driving with a blindfold isn't the cleverest thing to do.

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

"It really puts everybody at risk".

Fortunately, no one was injured in the Layton, Utah, crash, a representative at the police department told CBS News.

Layton Police Department shared images of two badly damaged vehicles on Twitter explaining that the collision was the "predictable result" of the "Bird Box" challenge, in which people are called to do everyday tasks blindfolded.
