+1. It's a possible concern, but the more info we have (or an LBS mechanic who can actually examine it directly), the better we can estimate how much of a risk it really is.

My guess is that since the bike is steel, you can just keep an eye on the area, since cracks normally will propagate gradually, and you can just watch to see if cracks ever develop. Have an LBS check the frame alignment, too - it's possible that this was thrown off in the crash.
"c" is not a unit that measures tire width
