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 is this even a headline,. Are you saying he checked the car before he saved them and he would have left if they were not white. This is idiotic. Give the guy a break.

What difference does it make if they were white? The whole issue of George Zimmerman has gotten out of control. I think everybody needs to step back and take a deep breath.

Just like our dumba** president . . . . that jacka** Obama and his f-ing comments. That man needs to STFU!!!!! And Harvey, you are an idiot with the things you allow to be said on these posts. Not only that, you seem to be obsessing about butts and boobs. GO GET LAID FOR GODS SAKE you moron!

Thank you TMZ. Did you really need to post an article on the fact that the people he helped rescue were white. Its articles like this that ad to the already high race tensions in this country.

How stupid...do you think he stopped and looked at the skin color of the crash victims, and then decided to rescue the people because they were white? This guy deep down is probably a good guy, he reacted to the crash and skin color was not a factor, skin color only seems to matter to the lame media in this country.

TMZ, you guys are disgusting and pathetic, one of the most outrageous stories you've ever published. Attempting to create more racial divisiveness, from a non-racial issue, is irresponsible journalism (if you can call it that) at its very worst.

Shame on tmz for keeping his name associated with color. The media makes a lot of racial problems. Shane on you guys.

Get over the fact that George Zimmerman isn't ****ing white, is he part white? yes but so is Obama. Look at him he's clearly a brown man, unlike that media edited pic to make him look white and incite violence against whites.
