(SPARTANBURG, S.C.) -- A candlelight vigil was held in South Carolina Tuesday night to remember Benjamin Easler, the six-year-old boy who was killed in an accident at an amusement park a few days before.
Hundreds attended the memorial service in Spartanburg, including Rodney Morrison, one of the 18 people injured in the crash.
"I was only on the floor for like a minute or something," said Morrison, describing the accident. "And I stood up and looked around and I saw people all over the place on the floor and stuff. It was crazy."
On Saturday, Easler, Morrison and 26 other passengers -- ranging in age from three to 54 -- were aboard a children's train ride at Cleveland Park in Spartanburg when the train derailed and crashed. Matt Conrad, the driver of the "Sparky" ride, later told police he had been driving too fast at the time of the accident.
Easler, who was visiting the amusement park with a group from Corinth Baptist Church, where his father is a pastor, was the only person killed.
