Layton Police said that a 17-year-old girl was driving down Utah's Layton Parkway on Monday when she made a decision to cover her eyes with her beanie to participate in the so-called "Bird Box Challenge" and immediately lost control of her grey truck.

Law enforcement in Colorado predicted last week that someone might attempt the "Bird Box" challenge while driving and also warned people against it.

Layton police in Utah responded to a crash Monday because a driver covered her eyes while driving.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash.

This week the same advice came from Layton police department.

The "Bird Box" challenge, which has gone viral on social media, is inspired by the Netflix movie "Bird Box", starring Sandra Bullock.

The challenge has seen people being filmed doing a variety of every day things blindfolded, including walking into walls and down streets.

The #BirdBoxChallenge started trending when several people started posting their videos of the challenge online.

Word of the challenge and the obvious dangers it was presenting reached Netflix fast.

It would appear that not everyone is heeding the streaming service's words. "This happened on Monday as a result of the driver covering her eyes while driving on Layton Parkway".

Of course, if you've seen Bird Box, you know there's a scene in which several characters make a white-knuckle drive in a vehicle with the windows covered, and it's hardly a smooth ride.
