Police in Layton, Utah confirm a teen driver crashed their vehicle after attempting the “Bird Box Challenge” while driving this week.

The challenge consists of people doing everyday activities blindfolded, mimicking the characters in the new Netflix movie “Bird Box,” starring Sandra Bullock. In the movie, the characters are forced to blindfold themselves outside.

Officials say the 17-year-old teen decided to try the challenge while driving with a 16-year-old passenger.

They say she pulled her beanie over her eyes, immediately losing control of the vehicle.

She crossed over the line into oncoming traffic, hit another vehicle, and crashed into a light pole, police said.

Luckily no one was injured in the stunt.
