8-Year-Old Drives Sister To McDonald's

East Palestine, Ohio - Police say they were called to a local McDonald's restaurant in response to a van in the drive through window being driven by an eight-year-old boy, with his four-year-old sister as a passenger.

The boy just wanted to buy a cheeseburger, according to Officer Jacob Koehler. The report states the boy grabbed his dad's keys and his sister, and drove the van to the restaurant Sunday evening around 8 p.m. from his home about a half mile away while his parents were asleep.

According to witnesses, the boy obeyed the rules of the road, staying within the speed limit and stopping for red lights. Apparently the boy told police he learned how to drive by watching YouTube videos.

The kids got some food to eat while waiting for their grandparents to come get them. No charges were filed.
