The driver then lost control and slid into the westbound lane, striking a white passenger vehicle and a light pole near 675 Layton Parkway, Lyman said.
"Bird Box Challenge while driving... predictable result", the department said.
The Layton Police Police Department tweeted two photos of the crash, which it said occurred Monday. No word on whether the other driver plans to sue her for criminal stupidity - it was reportedly through his own efforts that police learned the driver who'd hit him was blindfolded.
Layton Police spokesman Lt. Travis Lyman told CBS News that a 17-year-old girl was driving with a 16-year-old passenger at the time of the crash. In the movie, characters have to move about the outside world wearing blindfolds to avoid looking at an unseen monster that forces people to kill themselves.
Earlier this month, Netflix warned its viewers against the "Bird Box" challenge.

Moreover, show organisers and Consumer Technology Association alleged that this product is obscene, indecent and immoral. One major company that you won't find at CES is Apple Inc., which opts to produce its own announcements of new products.
"It's just inexcusable to do something as unsafe 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.

He said police had recommended the driver face a charge of reckless driving.
Netflix already has tried to combat the social media-driven phenomenon, tweeting a January 2 advisory that "Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes".
