The Bird Box challenge, based off of Netflix's latest horror movie where citizens must stay blindfolded to stay alive, had a predictable result.

A driver in Layton, Utah, crashed her vehicle while wearing a blindfold - a stunt inspired by the Netflix movie "Bird Box".

According to the Layton City Police Department, the unnamed 17-year-old and her 16-year-old passenger were driving down a major thoroughfare in town when the older teen decided it was the flawless time to play-act Bird Box.

A teenager with her hat over her eyes drove into oncoming traffic in the city of Layton while taking part in the so-called "Bird Box Challenge".

No injuries were initially reported, Fox 13 reports.

The challenge was inspired by Netflix's new thriller "Bird Box", which takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where people need to wear blindfolds to block the outside world and prevent themselves from being possessed by demons that prey on their worst fears and lead them to commit suicide.

It even acknowledged that the common meaning of the words in the statute would encompass her professional relationship with Mr. The judge said he was not determining whether Judd was sexually harassed by Weinstein "in the colloquial sense of the term".

One truck appears to have its passenger-side bumper bent inward, while the entire driver's side of a Honda HR-V is smashed. "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".

Police are reportedly weighing reckless driving charges against the teen.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash.

Earlier this month, Netflix warned its viewers against the "Bird Box" challenge.

'Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE.
