8 year old Ohio boy borrows family car, takes little sister to McDonald’s

EAST PALESTINE, Ohio (KLFY) — An 8-year-old who says he learned how to drive by watching YouTube videos took his 4-year-old sister to McDonald’s Sunday.

According to the police report, the little East Palestine, Ohio resident was hungry and wanted a cheeseburger so he borrowed dad’s keys and drove to Mickey D’s.

Not only was the fast food restaurant a half a mile away, but he reportedly stopped at red lights, turned left into the parking lot and pulled in the drive-thru.

Workers couldn’t believe their eyes, they thought someone was playing a joke on them.

The boy and his sister got to eat while employees called the police. Their grandparents came to pick them up.

Police say no charges are being filed.
