Even a kid can't resist a Big Mac craving. An 8-year-old in East Palestine, Ohio got hungry on Sunday, so he drove himself and his little sister to McDonald's. According to The Weirton Daily Times, people say that the boy was driving well, obeying all traffic laws and traffic lights.

The boy pulled up to the drive-through with his 4-year-old sister in the passenger seat and ordered a cheeseburger. He then tried to pay for his meal from his piggy bank—adorable—and the fast food chain employees thought was a prank. “The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren’t,” shared a police officer called to the scene.

The officer was impressed by the kid's driving skills.“He didn’t hit a single thing on the way there. It was unreal,” he said. 

The boy apparently learned to drive from YouTube. While his parents were napping, he took the keys to his father's van and went out to satiate his burger craving.  

The boy and his sister were eventually were taken to the police station by their grandparents, after they ate their fast food meals. Their parents later picked them up and and no charges were filed.
