"Bird Box Challenge while driving.predictable result", the Layton Police Department tweeted on Friday.

A blindfolded teenage driver in Utah crashed into another auto for obvious reasons on Monday, according to the Layton Police Department.

The 17-year-old girl pulled a beanie over her eyes and kept driving, according to KATV.

This week the same advice came from Layton police department.

Lt. Travis Lyman, Layton Police, said the 17-year-old girl driving the pickup truck was with a 16-year-old boy when she chose to attempt the "Bird Box Challenge" and used a beanie as an impromptu blindfold.

Lyman says it should serve as a warning he never thought he'd have to give: Don't drive while blindfolded. Luckily no injuries, ' the post continued.

The "Bird Box Challenge" is when whose who play attempt to perform normal tasks while blindfolded, as some of the characters must do in the movie.

She tries to guide her children - referred to as Boy and Girl - to safety along a treacherous river and through a dense forest, all without being able to see.

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

The film inspired some fans to set up #BirdBoxChallenge, leading to people running into walls or coming dangerously close to traffic.

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