The family that George Zimmerman rescued from an overturned SUV in Florida last week is white ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

According to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, the two adults who were pulled out of their overturned SUV on July 17 were described as a white male and a white female.

The report states that the SUV was traveling toward an off-ramp on State Road 417 when the driver lost control ... causing the vehicle to "go off road and roll over."

As we previously reported, two men responded to the accident and helped pull the family to safety -- one of the rescuers was George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Officials say there were 4 passengers inside the SUV at the time of the wreck -- 2 parents and 2 children.

TMZ has also obtained the 911 calls placed by witnesses moments after the crash, detailing the accident. Take a listen.

What in hell does the family's race have to do with it? TMZ--if you really want to worry about something, try fixing all these disgusting spammers that we have to tolerate all day long. Other sites have it under control, why can't TMZ?

Oh, that explains it. Well I know his PR team has to improve his image to make $ off the movie and book deals pending. But this is a little corny too much too soon. What next, Zimmy going to leap tall buildings to save little old white ladies from burning wheel chairs?
