Lieutenant Daniel O'Connor died from injuries received when his parked patrol car was struck by another automobile.

Lieutenant O'Conner was seated in a patrol car and parked on the FDR Expressway near the Brooklyn Bridge. The operator of an approaching vehicle lost control of his vehicle, causing the vehicle to spin around. The vehicle struck the front of the parked patrol car, and Lieutenant O'Connor was thrown forward, striking his head on the door support. He was thrown from the vehicle, landing on the roadway. Lieutenant O'Connor returned to work one week later, but had pain in his shoulder and stomach. He went to his doctor, who found internal injuries. Surgery was performed to correct the injuries, but the surgery was unsuccessful. Lieutenant O'Connor died from the injuries two months later.

Lieutenant O'Connor served with the New York City Police Department for 19 years and was survived by his wife. He was assigned to the Highway District.
