Zimmerman Saves Family of Four in Florida Car Crash, Extinguishes Car Fire

*Updated

On Wednesday, July 17 at about 5:45 PM  Sanford Police responded to a single car accident in the area of I- 4 and State Road 46 in Sanford. A blue Ford Explorer SUV  traveled off the road and rolled over. There were four occupants inside the vehicle, two parents and two children.  An eyewitness to the accident told Breitbart News the SUV lost control in front of the witness’s car. The SUV later caught fire.

The deputy reported, when he arrived on the scene that one of the two men  helping the family was George Zimmerman. According to Sanford Police Zimmerman had a fire extinguisher with him. The eyewitness told Breitbart News he helped assist the family out of the vehicle and put out the fire with the extinguisher.

“Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash, which was why he was not referenced in the police report,” a Sanford Police spokeswoman told Breitbart News.  “He left after making contact with the deputy. There were no reports of injuries of any of the vehicle’s occupants,” she said.

An eyewitness to the accident told Breitbart News that people on the scene recognized Zimmerman and thanked him for his help before he left.

Zimmerman’s location has been unknown since he was found “not guilty” of second degree murder and manslaughter of Trayvon Martin recently.
