UTAH - A Utah teenager who tried the Bird Box Challenge while driving may now face charges, according to the Layton Police Department. 

KUTV says that on Monday around 4:50 p.m., the 17-year-old girl was driving on Layton Parkway when her 16-year-old passenger decided to try the Bird Box Challenge, in which people blindfold themselves and see if they can do everyday tasks. 

The driver then pulled a beanie over her eyes and kept driving. She then skidded into the other lanes and hit another car, a light pole and a sound wall. 

Authorities say no one was injured during the crash. Police say they are screening a reckless driving charge with the city attorney's office.
