The driver then lost control and slid into the westbound lane, striking a white passenger vehicle and a light pole near 675 Layton Parkway, Lyman said.
A teenager has crashed her auto while covering her eyes as part of the so-called Bird Box challenge.
"Bird Box" is a recently released Netflix drama featuring Sandra Bullock where a woman and her children live in an apocalyptic world that requires them to cover their eyes to avoid evil in order to escape.
According to the Layton City Police Department, the unnamed 17-year-old and her 16-year-old passenger were driving down a major thoroughfare in town when the older teen decided it was the ideal time to play-act Bird Box.
The teen, who is not being named, then crossed over into oncoming traffic, hit a white SUV and crashed into a light pole, police said, according to ABC4. One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded. Police say they are screening a reckless driving charge with the city attorney's office.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the Layton, Utah, crash, a representative at the police department told CBS News.
"Luckily no injuries", police wrote.
Bird Box capped off a year of challenges that included swallowing liquid detergent Tide pods, snorting condoms and even the continuation of the deadly #FireChallenge - which involves setting yourself on fire in front of a camera.
While the company called for people not to hurt themselves, it kicked off its own Bird Box challenge of sorts - partnering with popular Australian Twitch streamers to play their games blindfolded.
