8-year old boy steals dad’s car to drive his younger sister to McDonald’s
The boy drove his four-year-old sister to a McDonald’s drive-thru that was a mile and a half away from his home in East Palestine, Ohio County. Their parents were sleeping when this happened. He ordered a cheeseburger and paid with money from his piggy bank. The McDonald’s employees who took his order thought it was a prank, according to the Telegraph.
“This kid learned how to drive on YouTube,” patrolman Jacob Koehler said, as reported by the Weirton Daily Times.
“I think there is a good teaching point here. With the way technology is … kids will learn how to do anything and everything.
“He probably looked it up for five minutes and then said it was time to go.”
He added: “He didn’t hit a single thing on the way there. It was unreal.”
The police were alerted after having received several calls from concerned witnesses.
