One business owner and his five-year-old son remember November 15 vividly.
Elite Auto Sports owner Rene Hernandez says the train tragedy is similar to another terrible day in American history.
"It was like some world trade center typed deal, like everybody is hurt, everybody doesn't know what to do," said Hernandez.
It's a yearly tradition for Hernandez and his son Jaden Hernandez to watch the "Show of Support Hunt for Heroes" parade.
"It was fun but it just started," said Jaden.
Jaden was excited to see the motorcycles and cool cars in the parade, but this year things changed so quickly.
"The truck couldn't move back because of the trailer because it's too big that's why it was broked. It flipped everyone off the trailer," said Jaden.
Now two weeks later, Jaden still asks his dad often about the train tragedy and the people hurt, his father's best responds:
"Just pray baby you know just pray and these people are gonna be okay and he said okay daddy."
However, at night Jaden's thoughts don't go away.
"It actually flipped everyone off the train in my dream," said Jaden.
Elite Auto Sports sits on Garfield Street. It's just feet away from the rail road tracks.
"You hear the bells and you get these chills down your spine and you turn around and make sure nobody is in the way cause you already witnessed it and making sure everyone is away from the railroad tracks," said Hernandez.
He went on to say that he often gets question from customers about that tragic day. Hernandez says he won't soon forget the accident. It's forever changed his view of trains.
"I look at it as a weapon now... the train's deadly."
