An 8-year-old boy successfully drove to McDonald's after learning from YouTube videos


An 8-year-old boy may be a better driver than some of the people on your commute.

Police in East Palestine, Ohio, said an 8-year-old boy drove his dad's van with his little sister in the backseat on a trip to McDonald's on Sunday. His parents had both fallen asleep earlier that evening.

Police spokesman Jacob Koehler said the boy drove about a mile from home through four intersections, over railroad tracks and made several turns. Witnesses said he obeyed all traffic laws and drove the speed limit, Fox 8 Cleveland reports.

A family friend happened to see the boy and his sister at McDonald's eating cheeseburgers and called police. 

The boy said he learned to drive after watching YouTube videos. 

The fact that YouTube taught him to drive so well raised eyebrows.
