Driver who crashed auto while blindfolded was doing the "Bird Box challenge"

On Monday afternoon, the unnamed teen drove on the highway with her beanie hat pulled over her eyes.

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

Police suspect that a recent viral challenge inspired by the popular Netflix horror movie Bird Box was responsible for a vehicle accident on Monday.

Layton police tweeted photos on Friday explaining the accident.

There were no injuries reported in connection with the crash, KTLA sister station KSTU in Salt Lake City reported.

One truck appears to have its passenger-side bumper bent inward, while the entire driver's side of a Honda HR-V is smashed.

Based on the hit Netflix horror starring Sandra Bullock, the social media challenge involves participants taking part in tasks while wearing a blindfold, emulating characters in the film who must evade sight-targeting monsters. "It really puts everybody at risk", said Travis Lyman of the Layton police. While nobody was injured, it's safe to say that driving a auto while blindfolded is definitely the opposite of a good idea.

Despite warnings from Netflix and just general common sense, it looks like people are still participating in that stupid Bird Box Challenge.

Lyman said police have requested the teen driver be charged with misdemeanor reckless driving.

In the viral challenge, participants attempt to do ordinary things while blindfolded, which, again, is unsafe for obvious reasons.
