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.

why does everyone keep saying he saved these people? nobody was even hurt, and he came on the scene after the fact. it doesn't appear his presence was necessary, and he more than likely was there to try to get some good credit- notably, despite being so afraid for his life, he stayed on the scene during rush hour until someone with a badge could come and officially write his name down as having been present. sorry. i don't count looky-loo-ing and looking for kudos/credit as heroic. and, seriously, a whole family and a co-hero haven't even mentioned their run in with fat georgie? that doesn't seem suspicious?

OMG, WHY is skin color such a big deal to people? I am so over it all! The media, starts all the racial wars with their idiotic reporting. If Trayvon had been purple, pink, green or blue and was bashing Zimmerman's head into the concrete, he still would have shot him, it was self defense! Anyone would have shot someone that was banging their head into pavement if they had a gun on them, I don't care what color they were! The people he pulled out of this car wreck, I highly doubt he looked in first to see what color they were, get OVER it media and everyone, especially the hypocritical blacks who shoot and kill each other daily in this country, where are all those killers in the news, that kill needlessly when they aren't even being attacked, they're robbing or mugging people and killing them, etc.??

Well here we go. TMZ just loves to stir the racial pot. With bold headlines they announce that GZ saved white people, as if they were black he would have turned his back on them. Just about done with this amaturish hack site. Go Dish Nation!

I guess George needs to find some blacks to rescue to make TMZ happy, I think I'm done with this stupid site and these stupid shows until something big happens.

Why does the color of someone's skin have to be injected into everything these days? Seriously does it matter if they were white black or purple?! NO!

George ain't a cracka. His father is some kind of whitey but his mother is Afro-Peruvian, which ends up making this a semi-black on black crime. He is registered as a Hispanic voter, so obviously he considers himself a Hispanic. What's up with the whitey thing?

Seriously? Who gives a crap if they were white? He helped a family in a crisis. This man never did a thing wrong, and he is proving now that he is a good man. Perhaps if a thug had not attacked him, this whole thing would not have happened.
