It surely won’t make a whit of difference to those aghast that a jury of George Zimmerman’s peers found him not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin. But a family of four has to be thanking its lucky stars that Zimmerman was on the scene when their SUV went off the road and rolled over.

ABC News reports:

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of … two parents and two children — trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday….

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

A deputy responding to a radio call reported that when he arrived, Zimmerman and another man had already helped the occupants out of the vehicle.

According to the police report, Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy. No one in the car was injured.

This is the first known public sighting of Zimmerman since he was acquitted of second-degree murder charges in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense.
