8-year-old Learns to Drive on YouTube and Heads To McDonald's

I guess when you want a cheeseburger you'll do anything to get one. I can only joke about this because no one got hurt when an 8-year-old Ohio boy took the family car to the local McDonald's.

Apparently, he wanted to take his 4-year-old sister to the fast food chain because they wanted cheeseburgers.

Can you even imagine this scene?

It was after 8 p.m. on Sunday night and his parents were asleep. So the boy drove to McDonald's, which was located about a half-mile away from his home. Police say the boy drove "effortlessly" through downtown and he obeyed all of the traffic laws.

A family friend called the police, and when the cops arrived the boy said he learned to drive by watching YouTube videos.

 “I think there is a good teaching point here. With the way technology is any more kids will learn how to do anything and everything. This kid learned how to drive on YouTube. He probably looked it up for five minutes and then said it was time to go," a local patrolman told the media.



The kids did get to enjoy their cheeseburgers (which he paid for with money from his piggy bank), and they were picked up by the grandparents. No charges have been filed against the parents.
