7/29/2014 7:43 AM PDT

TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 calls placed by Team USA sprinter Torrin Lawrence moments before he was killed in a big rig crash ... in which he calmly explained that his car had spun out on the highway and he needed help. 

During the call, Lawrence couldn't have been nicer -- telling the operator he was on his way home to Florida when his Ford Taurus blew a tire and got stuck in the middle of Interstate 75. 

The operator tells Lawrence that help is on the way. 

Moments later, a big rig smashed into the Ford -- which then struck Lawrence who was still waiting near the vehicle. Lawrence was killed in the collision.  

He was 25. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
