LAYTON, Utah — Police in Utah are warning about the dangers of a viral social media challenge we told you about earlier this month.
Their sharp warning comes after crash on a parkway a little more than 20 miles north of Salt Lake City.
Netflix’s popular film “Bird Box,” which stars Sandra Bullock, tells the story of a mom and two kids who have to make their way down a river completely blindfolded in search of a sanctuary.
Since the film, people have tried doing various tasks while completely blindfolded. It may seem like an obvious thing NOT to do, but the trend has gotten so bad that Netflix has actually issued a warning itself.
Well now, police in Layton, Utah, say a driver — who was covering her eyes while on a parkway — caused a crash with another vehicle.
Amazingly, nobody was hurt.
But, the photos show it could have been a lot worse.
