I know this is very bad to lose a grandmother and grandson and my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved in this tragic accident! I wish the public would understand that trains can not stop on a dime in this situation and I don't know any train driver that would just not blow the horn at all crossings. Trains also have event recorders that tells you everything the train driver does from point A to point B.

He was new and quit his job that day. Please don't give your opinion, if you don't know all the facts.
