Cops: Oakland man who drove into water in Tiburon nodded off at the wheel

The driver, 39-year-old Michael Elliot, was able to pull himself out of the driver-side window and climb on top of the vehicle while a team of Tiburon Fire Protection District rescue swimmers assembled to move him safely to land, Tiburon police Officer Mike Slobodnik said.
