"Apparently, as a part of this 'Bird BoxChallenge, ' (the driver) used her beanie to pull over her eyes as she was driving on Layton Parkway, and she ended up losing control of her auto and skidded into the westbound lanes of Layton Parkway and hit another vehicle and ended up hitting a light pole as well".
Additional interviews later revealed that the teen was attempting the viral media challengeinspired by Netflix's hit December flick, Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, in which characters must cover their eyes to prevent themselves from going mad and killing themselves.
