Police Believe Bird Box Challenge Resulted in Car Crash

Layton police say a 17-year old drove blindfolded while doing the ‘Bird Box’ challenge. It didn’t end well

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

Netflix original movie Bird Box inspired a Layton, Utah driver to operate a vehicle while blindfolded, resulting in an accident the Layton Police Department deemed a "predictable result", CBS News reports.

Initially, police were told the crash was caused by the driver getting distracted while she talked to her 16-year-old male passenger, Lyman said.

United States official warns of recession risk if interest rates go much higher
Before the Fed began buying bonds in the face of the 2007-2009 recession, it had about $900 billion in assets. Even so, US central bankers face a challenging year that's complicating their communication.


What is the "Bird Box Challenge"?

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.

"Honestly, I'm nearly embarrassed to have to say "Don't drive with your eyes covered", but you know apparently we do have to say that". Police are recommending charges of reckless driving. "It really puts everybody at risk", said Travis Lyman of the Layton police.

Sarri tells Chelsea hierarchy to sign two players
He did say if Alvaro Morata leaves, with loan moves to Sevilla and Atletico Madrid mooted, Chelsea would need a replacement. Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona, but Sarri ruled out the prospect of the Brazilian departing this month.


Amazingly, no one was injured-though this story could have had a much darker tone had she struck the innocent driver head-on. Officers said she was participating in the popular "Bird Box" social media 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.

For its part, Netflix has pleaded with people to be safe and avoid hurting themselves with the Bird Box Challenge.
