Utah Police Lt. Travis Lyman said, "Apparently, as a part of this Bird Box Challenge, ' (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". Layton Police reveal that a 17-year-old girl chose to perform the trending challenge, while driving with a 16-year-old passenger inside.

If you're not familiar with the "Bird Box" Challenge, it's based on a insane popular Netflix movie that came out last month, and it involves people trying to do everyday activities while blindfolded.

With a hat pulled over her eyes as she was driving on Layton Parkway, the teenager hit a truck and a light pole, reports KSL, adding that no one was hurt.

Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, has been a major hit for Netflix.

The challenge involves people blindfolding themselves and performing activities such as walking or running, pretending to be the blindfolded characters in the movie.

In addition to rowing boats, tending to gardens and running through forests blindfolded, they also drive a vehicle with all the windows blacked out, relying exclusively on Global Positioning System for guidance - in what is perhaps one of the most memorable scenes in the film.

In an interview with local station KSL, Lieutenant Travis Lyman of Layton Police said he never thought he'd have to warn people not to drive blindfolded.
