George Zimmerman leaves court after the not-guilty verdict was read in Sanford, Fla,. on July 13.
Was it a coincidence that George Zimmerman was in the right place at the right time when a SUV, travelling past the home where he’s been holed up since his not guilty verdict, overturned and crashed less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin. Or was it aplot devised by Zimmerman’s defense attorneys to mold the pudgy 29 y.o old self-appointed neighborhood watchman into some type of hero? In lieu of a federal investigation concerning whether Zimmerman violated Martin’s civil rights followed by a possible civi suit against him and the state of Florida, I would say stranger things have happened…like his acquittal for instance.
George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.
Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were 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 Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.
By the time police arrived, two people – including Zimmerman – had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff’s office said. No one was reported to be injured.
Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said.
It’s the first known sighting of Zimmerman since he left the courtroom following his controversial acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin. Zimmerman, 29, shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. The jury determined that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense.
