    We made it 11 days into 2019 without a meme-inspired accident, but that’s all over now. Someone has officially failed the “Bird Box Challenge.”

    If you aren’t aware, the hot new trend is to try driving in traffic while blindfolded. Inspired by the Netflix movie Bird Box (in which a blindfolded Sandra Bullock walks around trying not to see a scary monster), the Bird Box Challenge falls somewhere between a marketing meme and the knockout game. And according to police in Layton City, Utah, the stunt resulted in a pretty nasty accident earlier this week.

    Lieutenant Travis Lyman, a spokesperson for the department, told Gizmodo that a 17-year-old girl tried her luck with the meme on Monday and ended up crashing into another vehicle. He said the girl was driving down Layton Parkway with a 16-year-old passenger when she blindfolded herself by pulling her beanie down over her eyes. She didn’t last long before drifting into the opposite lane and colliding with a car.

    In addition to hitting another vehicle whose driver had not voluntarily entered into the challenge, the teenager’s truck also spun into a sound wall and a light post. Miraculously, no one was injured. Lyman said reckless driving charges against the teen were being considered.

    Reckless driving charges are being considered. That punishment should make anyone considering it stop.

    Being that stupid she should lose her license for life, and a couple of years in jail wouldn't hurt either.

    I think the parents should sell the car, buy her a bus pass or a bicycle.
