Don had been hunting up near Portland, OR. He had
been asleep in his car while waiting for a ferry to cross the Willamette
River, after a duck shooting expedition. Witnesses said he roused
suddenly, and half awake, thought the ferry was there, started down the
steep drive, and lost control of the car. As the car went in the water,
the ferry docked on top of it, trapping the auto and drowning Donald.
