From contributor #46902002:

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.
