Quite ironic that both the husband and the father of Joanna McNamara would be killed by being struck by large vehicles.

With an inquest existing, there should be a newspaper article somewhere

So far, looking for a newspaper article online has come up with very little. The website with the historic newspapers of wales does not go as far as 1933 and I am currently unable to get hold of the coroner inquest.
