Momence train crash prompts evacuations

I had heard one brief mention on the news, aboutthis collision, but, oddly, nobody bothered to say where the trains met.

I'm a little perturbed by the number of recent train wrecks at the precise location of previous, fairly recent, crashes. I suppose it has a lot to do with certain spots simply being harder to maneuver past safely, but Jeez! only six years ago on this very spot?! Shouldn't somebody have already fixed the problem to eliminate this risk? Or is it just that, with so many trains running, there's nothing more to do except pray?
