‘Bird Box Challenge’: Teen crashes after driving car blindfolded
A teenager escaped without injuries after drifting into another lane of traffic while driving blindfolded, inspired by the film
A teenage driver has crashed into another car after pulling her hat over her eyes as part of the so-called “Bird Box Challenge”.
The 17-year-old was (unsuccessfully) trying to emulate characters from Bird Box, a Sandra Bullock movie where characters are forced to blindfold themselves to escape an apocalypse caused by supernatural beings.
Characters who look at the film’s villains are driven mad and eventually kill themselves after suffering visions that urge them to die.
The unlikely craze saw Netflix warn the public not to copy the characters and embark on the challenge.
Nonetheless, countless videos of people trying to do things while blindfolded have been circulated online – with some reckless motorists covering their eyes while behind the wheel.
This dangerous craze has been sweeping across the country and unfortunately it’s another that could have serious consequences.
