The department shared two photos on Twitter - the gray truck the 17-year-old girl was driving while blindfolded, and the white SUV she hit.
Lt. Travis Lyman told Fox13 that the 17-year-old female driver of the pickup truck was driving on the Layton Parkway with a 16-year-old male passenger when she made a decision to take part in the challenge and blind herself using a beanie.
The challenge has seen people being filmed doing a variety of every day things blindfolded, including walking into walls and down streets.
"I nearly feel silly saying this", said Layton Police Lieutenant Travis Lyman. Police are recommending charges of reckless driving. "The stakes are just so high and it's just such a potentially risky thing as it is: to try and do it in that way is inexcusable".
