At 4:50 p.m. Monday, a 17-year-old girl was driving a gray truck east along Layton Parkway when she pulled her beanie over her eyes to attempt the "Bird Box" Challenge, Layton Police Lt. Travis Lyman said.

The craze has come from the Netflix film Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock.

"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".

Last week Netflix warned fans not to attempt the challenge.

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

Layton police tweeted photos on Friday explaining the accident.

Maurizio Sarri Confirms He Wants Two New Players At Chelsea This January
Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are now preparing for their home clash against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday night. Asked where he felt Chelsea needed reinforcements, Sarri said: "As you can understand, I cannot tell you where".

"I nearly feel silly saying this", said Layton Police Lieutenant Travis Lyman.

The 17-year-old driver, her 16-year-old passenger and the occupants of the other auto all escaped serious injury. "We shouldn't have to say this, but we're gonna: Don't drive blindfolded".

Jake Paul's bird box challenge video has been taken off Youtube.

The film, however, has since inspired the #BirdBoxChallenge, which features people trying to do daily - and sometimes harmful - tasks while their eyes are covered.

Fortunately, no one was hurt in the crash just north of Salt Lake City in Utah, US.
