Driver crashed while participating in 'Bird Box Challenge'

"This happened on Monday as a result of the driver covering her eyes while driving on Layton Parkway", Layton Police tweeted Friday.

The Layton Police Department reported no injuries were associated with the crash.

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 auto with the windows covered, and it's hardly a smooth ride.

The driver then lost control and slid into the westbound lane, striking a white passenger vehicle and a light pole near 675 Layton Parkway, Lyman said.

The streamer previously issued a warning against participating in the "Bird Box Challenge", which involves performing often risky stunts while blindfolded.

Despite warnings from Netflix and just general common sense, it looks like people are still participating in that stupid Bird Box Challenge.

"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", Lyman said.

Sandra Bullock and Sarah Paulson in Bird Box. "The stakes are just so high and it's just such a potentially risky thing as it is: to try and do it in that way is inexcusable".

Lyman said police have requested the teen driver be charged with misdemeanor reckless driving.
