Customs Agent O'Riordan died from injuries received in an automobile accident four days earlier in Burlington County, New Jersey.

He was completing a 24-hour long shift conducting surveillance, while also serving as acting supervisor of the port patrol officers, when he hit a telephone pole after being cut off by another driver. He was taken to the Rancocas Valley Hospital where he remained for four days. He succumbed to his injuries approximately 16 hours after undergoing surgery for a ruptured pancreas.

Customs Agent O'Riordan was a U.S. Army veteran of WWII. He had served with the Customs Service for 12 years and was survived by his wife, four sons, and daughter.
