SANFORD, FL (RNN) – Days after his acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman helped four people involved in a car crash, officials reported.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office released a statement Monday on the single-vehicle accident. It happened Wednesday when an SUV went off the road and rolled over.

Zimmerman, 29, and another man helped the people out of the vehicle by the time law enforcement arrived.

He did not witness the accident and left after speaking with a deputy, authorities stated. No injuries were reported from the incident.

A jury found Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder charges July 13. He claimed he shot and killed Martin, 17, in self defense after a fight broke out between the two.
