Police: Driver crashes trying 'Bird Box' blindfold challenge© Getty SALT LAKE CITY — Police say a Utah teenager crashed into another car when she covered her eyes as part of the so-called "Bird Box Challenge."

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," a Sandra Bullock movie on Netflix where characters must be constantly blindfolded to avoid visions that urge them to die.

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

No one was hurt in the Monday crash north of Salt Lake City.

6 hurt when car crashes into church, shatters stained glass

6 hurt when car crashes into church, shatters stained glass Authorities in Ohio say six people are being treated for injuries after a car smashed through a church wall and shattered stained glass during Sunday morning services. Firefighters say the six who were hurt at Crossroads United Methodist Church in Columbus were treated for cuts and other injuries. The church was unusually crowded because there was a special Christmas choir performance.

Lyman says it should serve as a warning he never thought he'd have to give: Don't drive while blindfolded.
