A newly-licensed Utah teen is facing reckless driving charges after she blindfolded herself while driving and crashed into oncoming traffic in an attempt to perform the "Bird Box Challenge," a viral stunt inspired by the Netflix hit where people attempt to do everyday tasks without the handy help of vision. Key word: Attempt.
According to the Layton City Police Department, the unnamed 17-year-old and her 16-year-old passenger were driving down a major thoroughfare in town when the older teen decided it was the perfect time to play-act >Bird Box. If you haven't seen the movie, the gist is the world is plagued by supernatural beings that will compel anyone who sees them to kill themselves. Hence, the blindfolds.
