Teen crashes her car after 'Attempting Bird Box Challenge' while driving blindfolded

What is wrong with people?

By now, you're probably heard about famous Netflix new programme 'Bird Box Challenge', where idiots - film themselves attempting to carry out various tasks while blindfolded, like Sandra Bullock's character in the movie Bird Box; although she was doing it out of necessity and most importantly it was just pretended.

However, the silly challenge has now gone one step further - people attempting to drive while covering her eyes.

A teenage girl in US crashed into another car when she covered her eyes as part of the "Bird Box Challenge".

Layton police lieutenant Travis Lyman said that the 17-year-old drifted into oncoming traffic & hit another car after she pulled a hat over her eyes to do like from the film Bird Box.

Videos of people trying to do things while blindfolded have attracted widespread attention online, and Netflix tweeted a warning about the challenge last week.

Lt Lyman said it should serve as a warning he never thought he would have to give: Don't drive while blindfolded.
