An 8-year-old boy from Ohio took his 4-year-old sister on a joy ride to McDonald’s for a cheeseburger in his father’s work van.
Police said the child’s father worked all day and went to bed early. The mother was on the couch with the children when she fell asleep.
Once the boy and his sister arrived at McDonald’s, a family friend called the children’s grandparents. The children were able to finish their cheeseburgers before police arrived.
The young boy told East Palestine Police he just wanted to buy a cheeseburger and that he had learned how to drive by watching YouTube videos. The boy reportedly followed the rules of the road, stopping at lights and staying within speed limits.
Although no one was hurt and no charges were filed, the case remains under investigation.
