    A Utah teenager may face a reckless driving charge after trying to complete the "Bird Box" challenge on the highway.

    On Monday at approximately 4:50 p.m., a 17-year-old girl was driving on Layton Parkway near Interstate 15, according to Lt. Travis Lyman with the Layton Police Department.

    The teen and a 16-year-old passenger decided to try the "Bird Box" Challenge, when participants blindfold themselves and see if they can do everyday tasks.

    The driver pulled a beanie over her eyes and kept driving, Lyman said.

    Shortly after, the teen overcorrected and skidded into the eastbound lanes.

    She hit another car, a light pole and a sound wall, Lyman said.

    No one was injured in the crash.

    Police are screening a reckless driving charge with the City Attorney's office.
