8-year-old boy drives to McDonald's after quick driving tutorial on YouTube

An 8-year-old boy in Ohio had a craving for a Big Mac. Only problem was that it was 8pm and his parents were already asleep. So the resourceful lad went onto YouTube, spent five minutes learning how to operate a car, and then invited his 4-year-old sister to take a spin with him for a meal at McDonald's.

Miraculously, he maneuvered the mile-and-a-half drive within the speed limit and didn't hit anything along the way. He then pulled into the drive-thru window, where the McDonald's employees thought it was a joke.

According to New York Post:

McDonald's workers said they thought they were being pranked when he drove up to order a cheeseburger with money from his piggy bank.

"The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren't," Koehler said.

Police said the 8-year-old burst into tears when he learned that he did something wrong. He told officers that it was his first time behind the wheel.

The boy and his sister were able to enjoy their meal while they waited for their grandparents to pick them up. No charges were filed.
