Have you checked in the library for newspaper reports of the accident? There might be a photograph there.

Your heading reads help trace my friend (L C.)

James Adam Bell Crossan died 1978 -  anything on his family L. C. age 41 daughter

What year was she born?
Did she have a middle name?
Do you know if she married? If so, do you know her married surname?

As stated previously Rootschat has a policy of not naming living persons - if you know she married just provide the surname.
