US driver - no, a DUMBASS! - in 'Bird Box blindfold' crashes in Utah

Police in the US state of Utah have taken the unusual step of urging residents not to drive blindfolded after an online challenge inspired by a horror film led to a crash.

 

A teenager with her hat over her eyes drove into oncoming traffic in the city of Layton while taking part in the so-called "Bird Box Challenge".

 

The craze has come from the Netflix film Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock.

 

Last week Netflix warned fans not to attempt the challenge.

 

This week the same advice came from Layton police department.

 

"It's just inexcusable to do something as dangerous as this, not only to yourself but everyone else on the road," said police Lt Travis Lyman, quoted by KSL.com.

 

He said it was a warning he never thought he would have to give - don't drive while blindfolded.

 

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

Read about this yesterday.  Dummy ... should have her license revoked for no less than a year.  Luckily no one was injured...but who in their right mind thinks "hey, I'm going to drive on a public roadway blindfolded" is a good idea.  Idiots.

If it were my child I would rip the license and ensure it was revoked.
