Teen crashes their auto while doing the Bird Box challenge

"Bird Box Challenge while driving.predictable result", the police tweeted on Friday, along with a photo of two mangled cars on Layton Parkway surrounded by snow-covered sidewalks.

Initially, police were told the crash was caused by the driver getting distracted while she talked to her 16-year-old male passenger, Lyman said.

The "Bird Box Challenge" takes its name from a recent Netflix movie "Bird Box", in which the characters must remain blindfolded.

KSL reported the driver had her beanie over her eyes at the time of the crash.

For those that are unfamiliar with the concept, the challenge stems from the film as some people have decided that they should wear blindfolds and navigate their way around the world. One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded.

"Honestly, I'm nearly embarrassed to have to say "Don't drive with your eyes covered", but you know apparently we do have to say that", Travis Lyman of the Layton police said.

Wreckless videos of people trying to do things while blindfolded have gone viral, prompting Netflix to issue a warning about the challenge. "The stakes are just so high and it's just such a potentially unsafe thing as it is: to try and do it in that way is inexcusable".

However, police have requested that the driver be charged with reckless driving, Lt Lyman said.

"Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE", the company tweeted on January 2.
