Boy in Spiderman pajamas scoots along Illinois highway

MURPHYSBORO, Ill. — Clad in Spiderman pajamas, a 5-year-old southern Illinois boy on a scooter had someplace to be. And he apparently wasn’t going to let busy highways stand in his way. Authorities said Jackson County sheriff’s deputies picked up the boy and his Razor-type scooter about 2 a.m. Wednesday along Old Illinois 13 in Murphysboro after fielding two 911 calls about the child’s trek.

Investigators said the boy reportedly left home without his parents’ knowledge to visit a friend in Carbondale, about seven miles away. Deputies got to him about two miles into his journey, which involved traveling on two major highways.

The boy was unharmed and returned to his grateful parents.

Murphysboro is one town to the west from Carbondale, where of course you know I lived for just about all of last year.

So I can attest:  An unattended young child wearing only PJs playing along the road relatively far from his house in the middle of the night isn’t unusual for Murphysboro — In fact, the image of that very thing is in the city’s official seal.  Murphysboro is truly the Rio Linda of far Southern Illinois.
