There were no injuries reported in connection with the crash.
The "Bird Box Challenge" takes its name from a recent Netflix movie "Bird Box", in which the characters must remain blindfolded. One YouTube star also filmed himself driving while blindfolded. If you haven't seen the movie, the gist is the world is plagued by supernatural beings that will compel anyone who sees them to kill themselves.
A teenager with her hat over her eyes drove into oncoming traffic in the city of Layton while taking part in the so-called "Bird Box Challenge".
No one was injured in Monday's crash but authorities didn't discover the reason of the accident until Friday.

"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. Driving is one of the most inherently risky things we do, and this kind of willful disregard for the safety of others should be grounds for an immediate and long-lasting suspension, just like a DUI. "It really puts everybody at risk", said Travis Lyman of the Layton police.
The challenge prompted Netflix to issue a warning tweet on January 2.
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.
