LAYTON, UTAH —

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

Layton police in Utah responded to a crash Monday because a driver covered her eyes while driving.

Stupid, right?

Luckily, there were no injuries but both cars sustained damage.

When the movie first came out, Netflix gave a clear warning to viewers to not try the dangerous challenge.

The #BirdBoxChallenge started trending when several people started posting their videos of the challenge online. One video shows a dad accidentally walking his toddler into a wall while trying to recreate one of the movie's many blindfolded scenes.
