Layton police in Utah responded to a crash Monday because a driver covered her eyes while driving.
Based on the hit Netflix horror starring Sandra Bullock, the social media challenge involves participants taking part in tasks while wearing a blindfold, emulating characters in the film who must evade sight-targeting monsters. The Layton Police Department reported no injuries were associated with the crash.
The driver veered into oncoming traffic and struck a passenger auto.
He said it was a warning he never thought he would have to give - don't drive while blindfolded.
"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.
No one was injured in the crash - a relief to Netflix, which earlier this month issued a warning to fans of the film to lay off the blindfold stunts.
Police told KSL that the driver, a 17-year-old girl, was driving the pickup truck seen in the photos above on Monday when the incident occurred.
Netflix original movie Bird Box inspired a Layton, Utah driver to operate a vehicle while blindfolded, resulting in an accident the Layton Police Department deemed a "predictable result", CBS News reports.
Police are recommending reckless driving charges in the case but it will be up to the County Attorney's Office to determine what charges, if any, are filed.
