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.

soooo he didn't witness the accident - was he listening to a police scanner or how did he "respond" to the accident? maybe trying to do something heroic to make people forgive him.....

He probably bullied them or checkened them off the road and created the accident for attention. they were probaby his friends and he is looking for good media attention to be cast with a halo over his fat head

You know what, I bet he could tell those people were white through the windows just like he could tell Trayvon was black through the rainy night. This guy must have some super bionic eye sight!!!

STFU TMZ! TMZ is the most racist website for trying to launch a race war. Zimmerman is a Hispanic in case if you racist morons did not know!

They forgot this part: TMZ has reached out to zimmerman's reps to ask if he would have had the same reaction if the car's occupants were black. No comment back yet.

Really TMZ? This is the most TERRIBLE story I have ever read on this site.

BREAKING NEWS: It took TMZ five days to get this report. Who are you paying in the Florida PD to feed you this stuff? I guess he can add rescued a family to his resume when he applies to become a State Trooper huh? Meh!!
