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

While the company called for people not to hurt themselves, it kicked off its own Bird Box challenge of sorts - partnering with popular Australian Twitch streamers to play their games blindfolded.

Police say a teenager participating in the latest viral challenge is responsible for a crash on Layton Parkway and will face reckless driving charges. One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded.

According to KUTV and the Layton police department, she soon veered into the other lane and hit another auto, a light pole and a sound wall.

Rhule is a native New Yorker, who spent one season as an assistant offensive line coach with the New York Giants in 2012. A source confirmed to The Athletic that the 40-year-old will become the 19th head coach in franchise history.

On Friday morning, the Layton Police Department of Layton, Utah shared the images showing the aftermath of a vehicle crash in which one of the drivers was allegedly trying to drive with their eyes covered.

The challenge is based on the hit Netflix movie starring Sandra Bullock where characters must constantly be blindfolded to avoid visions that urge them to commit suicide.

The popularity of the challenge even prompted Netflix to issue a warning against unsafe behavior.

It's also - and I can't believe we're at the point where this actually has to be said - an incredibly unsafe stunt to pull off the in real world.

Amazingly, no one was injured-though this story could have had a much darker tone had she struck the innocent driver head-on.

Sadly, some people still are still embracing the stupid, as seen by this 16-year-old motorist in the USA.

Unsafe stunts made popular on social media have been taking lives for years.
