There were no injuries reported in connection with the crash, KTLA sister station KSTU in Salt Lake City reported.

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

Lt. Travis Lyman, Layton Police, said the 17-year-old girl driving the pickup truck was with a 16-year-old boy when she chose to attempt the "Bird Box Challenge" and used a beanie as an impromptu blindfold. One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded.

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.

The challenge has seen people being filmed doing a variety of every day things blindfolded, including walking into walls and down streets.

"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. Police are recommending charges of reckless driving.

"It's just inexcusable to do something as risky as this, not only to yourself but everyone else on the road", said police Lt Travis Lyman, quoted by KSL.com.

Amazingly, no one was injured-though this story could have had a much darker tone had she struck the innocent driver head-on.

Age and inexperience are poor excuses; this person purposefully blinded themselves at the controls of a two-ton metal missile and put innocent lives at risk.

The social media challenge has gone viral, prompting Netflix to issue a warning to viewers on Twitter.
