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

On Friday morning, the Layton Police Department of Layton, Utah shared the images showing the aftermath of a vehicle crash in which one of the drivers was allegedly trying to drive with their eyes covered.

The Bird Box Challenge wallowed somewhere in between being not-a-meme and a meme-in-embryonic-state earlier this month when Netflix tweeted a warning to its users not to engage in this risky activity.

Police in Utah say a teen participating in the latest viral challenge caused a crash.

The "Bird Box" challenge, which has gone viral on social media, is inspired by the Netflix movie "Bird Box", starring Sandra Bullock.

Earlier this month, Netflix warned its viewers against the "Bird Box" challenge.

Layton police tweeted photos on Friday explaining the accident.

Sadly, some people still are still embracing the stupid, as seen by this 16-year-old motorist in the USA.

Lyman said police have requested the teen driver be charged with misdemeanor reckless driving. No word on whether the other driver plans to sue her for criminal stupidity - it was reportedly through his own efforts that police learned the driver who'd hit him was blindfolded.

Amazingly, no one was injured-though this story could have had a much darker tone had she struck the innocent driver head-on. "Would you?" The challenge reached its mature form of meme when YouTuber and professional brain genius Jake Paul posted a video of himself trying it for his young, impressionable audience. "We don't know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes".
