Michael Donohue, a Bristol shellfisherman, was attempting to drop his quahog skiff in the water at the State Street boat ramp about 6:00 p.m. Monday when the emergency brake failed and the truck rolled backwards into the water, along with the boat trailer. There was no one in the truck at the time.
