Police Believe Bird Box Challenge Resulted in Car Crash

There were no injuries reported in connection with the crash.

Jake Paul's "Bird Box Challenge" Video was reportedly removed from Youtube after he drives vehicle bindfolded.

It all started with the Netflix' movie Bird Box in late December.

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.

Well, we might be getting into an area where films that become pop-culture phenomenons require ridiculous warnings because just like the idea of sticking your head into a bee hive or swimming with sharks, driving with a blindfold isn't the cleverest thing to do. If you haven't seen the movie, the gist is the world is plagued by supernatural beings that will compel anyone who sees them to kill themselves.

"Honestly I'm nearly embarrassed to have to say "Don't drive with your eyes covered" but you know apparently we do have to say that", Lyman said. "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".

The teen could be facing reckless driving charges, police say but it will ultimately be up to the County Attorney's office.

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

Authorities say no one was injured during the crash.

"Can't believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE", Netflix tweeted from its primary account.
