US Boy, 8, drives to McDonald's with sister, 4, for cheeseburger !

An 8-year-old boy in the US, craving for a cheeseburger, drove his father's van to the local McDonald's outlet with his 4-year-old sister on board.

The boy from East Palestine, Ohio, got behind the wheel of his father's van and drove to McDonald's with his sister while their parents were asleep at home, police said.

The incident happened on Sunday when the child's father had worked all day and went to bed early while their mother was on the couch with the kids, when she fell asleep, East Palestine police officer Jacob Koehler told FOX 8 News.

After the parents fell asleep, the children decided to leave.

Koehler said the child drove about 1.5 km from his home with his little sister in the back of the van.

The journey took the boy through four intersections, over railroad tracks and also required him to make a few right hand turns and a left hand turn.

Witnesses told police he did obey all traffic laws and drove the speed limit.

Once at the McDonald's, a family friend who happened to be eating at the restaurant, notified the children's grandparents.

The children, however, did get to eat their cheeseburgers before police arrived.

Koehler arrived at McDonald's and talked to the little boy, who told him he had learned to drive by watching YouTube videos.
He told police he just wanted to buy a cheeseburger.

The case was under investigation, the report said.
