8-year-old drives younger sister to McDonald’s after craving a burger－想吃起司漢堡的8歲男童，開車載妹妹去麥當勞
An 8-year-old Ohio boy wanted a cheeseburger so badly, he got behind the wheel of his dad’s van and took matters into his own hands, police said.
The boy said it was simple： He just watched some YouTube videos on how to drive a car, according to investigators. Before long, they said he chauffeured his sister effortlessly to the McDonald’s half a mile from his East Palestine home while his parents were sleeping.
Witnesses said the 8-year-old obeyed all traffic laws like making sure to stop properly at red lights, waiting for traffic to pass before taking a left turn, and staying within the speed limits, Fox 5 reported.
When the two siblings pulled up to the drive-through window with piggy bank money in tow, the McDonald’s workers were convinced this was all a prank.
"The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren’t," responding patrolman Jacob Koehler told WFMJ.
