An 8-year-old boy from East Palestine, Ohio (just outside of Dayton) actually stole his Dad's van and drove himself and his 4-year-old sister to a nearby McDonald's in hopes of grabbing a cheeseburger.

The kid said he watched a tutorial on how to drive cars on YouTube.

Witnesses say the kid actually obeyed traffic laws. Wow!

Yes, this could've ended really, really badly for the boy and his sister, but, you kinda have to think that the parents are a LITTLE impressed with the kid's ingenuity. 

I mean... hey... we all have cravings, right?

BTW... no charges were filed. No word on whether the little pipsqueak got his cheeseburger.
