Driver crashed while participating in 'Bird Box Challenge'

"Bird Box Challenge while driving... predictable result", the department stated. According to KUTV and the Layton police department, she soon careered into the other lane and hit another vehicle, a light pole and a sound wall.

The teen, who is not being named, then crossed over into oncoming traffic, hit a white SUV and crashed into a light pole, police said, according to ABC4.

The 17-year-old driver, her 16-year-old passenger and the occupants of the other auto all escaped serious injury.

The latest nominee for the Darwin Award comes from a teen that drove on a highway in Utah with her beanie hat pulled over her eyes. It's unclear how many people were in the SUV.

No injuries were initially reported, Fox 13 reports.

Saudi teen Rahaf Alqunun granted asylum in Canada, Justin Trudeau confirms
Canada's ambassador had seen her off at the airport, Surachate said, adding that she looked happy and healthy. Ms.al-Qunun's case was dealt with on a fast-track "emergency" basis in light of the urgency of her situation.

The challenge is based on the hit Netflix movie starring Sandra Bullock where characters must constantly be blindfolded to avoid visions that urge them to commit suicide.

The "Bird Box" Challenge involves people blindfolding themselves while doing everyday tasks. One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded.

This viral challenge mirrors the premise of the Sandra Bullock-led horror that sees survivors utilize blindfolds to navigate a post-apocalyptic hellscape, lest they spot a malevolent force that turns its victims suicidal.

When the movie first came out, Netflix gave a clear warning to viewers to not try the unsafe challenge.
