8-year-old learns to drive from YouTube, takes sister to McDonald's
An 8-year-old boy in Ohio in the United States drove his 4-year-old sister to a local McDonald’s in their father’s van after learning how to drive by watching YouTube videos.
The kids quietly left their home after their parents went to sleep.
The boy drove over train tracks and many traffic crossings to get to the McDonald's.
He remained within the speed limit and obeyed all the traffic laws.
At McDonald's, the boy used money that he had taken from his piggy bank to pay for the cheeseburger. The shop workers thought the parents were sitting in the back. It was only when a family friend eating inside the restaurant noticed the kids that the incident became known.
Their parents were contacted and while the children ate their meal, the parents came to pick them up.
The police said that they will not file any charges in the case.
