    LAYTON, UTAH - Solid piece of advice: Don't drive blindfolded. 

    A Utah teen learned that the hard way when she tried to participate in the "Bird Box Challenge" while behind the wheel, police said. 

    The Layton Police Department tweeted images of the crash Friday. Luckily, they said, no one was injured. 

    Layton police Lt. Travis Lyman said Friday that the 17-year-old drifted into oncoming traffic and hit another car after she pulled a hat over her eyes to emulate "Bird Box."

    In the latest viral challenge sweeping the nation, participants try to complete everyday tasks while blindfolded. The game was inspired by Netflix's horror film "Bird Box," in which the characters have to remain blindfolded.

    Videos of people trying to do things while blindfolded have attracted widespread attention online, and Netflix tweeted a warning about the challenge last week.

    Clearly, this driver missed the message.
