Furthermore, it's not realistic that an able bodied male requires that he be "pulled out" of a vehicle, but he was not injured.
The Explorer was on it's side genius, there are these things called doors which must be opened and then held open while the driver and passengers carefully crawl out, if they're able, and then find their way down to the ground.

FYI Zimmerman is about as tall as an Explorer is wide, the exercise required a bit of effort and he probably got dirty.

George Zimmerman Crash Heroics 'Not Staged'
A public thank you from the family saved from their flipped car by Trayvon Martin's killer is shelved, amid conspiracy theories.

George Zimmerman's lawyer has brushed aside suggestions that his client's actions in helping save a family from a car wreck were staged.

Mark O'Mara said several officials and witnesses have confirmed the account of the former neighbourhood watch volunteer, who was recently acquitted of charges over the death of teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.

"The same people who refuse to accept the jury's verdict, just want to be angry, just want to hate George Zimmerman, are still going to," Mr O'Mara told CNN.

"Even if we had a videotape of the accident, they would still say it was made up. So you can't really respond to people who just don't want to listen to the truth."

Earlier on Wednesday, the husband and wife who were involved in the accident cancelled a planned news conference.

Mark and Dana Gerstle had wanted to talk about Mr Zimmerman's heroics when their car flipped over last week.

"They wanted to thank him publicly," the lawyer said. "They thought that they could not, for the possibility of blowback against them."

You're missing the point. The Daily Mail does not disclose who they got the story from. It was not authorities because the original story quotes "an unidentified driver". It was not Gerstle because he refused to talk to the media, and it certainly wasn't George Zimmerman.

Someone obviously responded to the Daily Mail's ask for an anonymous......the Gerstle involvement essentially put an end to it. Through O'Mara's mouth they thanked GZ, you can all go home now....we don't want the blowback from toxic chemicals to taint us.

But use your head! Two adults, two children involved in a highway roll-over crash do not walk away from the scene.....they'd at least be taken to hospital for observation of internal injuries. There's obviously more to this story than meets the eye because it does not make sense.

ABC News’ Robin Roberts Secures Interview With Another Zimmerman Juror
By Alex Weprin on July 25, 2013 10:56 AM

Another juror in the George Zimmerman trial is stepping forward for an interview, and this time her identity will not be hidden by shadows.

ABC News “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts interviewed juror B29 (her name is “Maddy) today, in a well-lit studio (see the photo to the left).“Maddy” was the only minority juror in the Zimmerman trial.

The new interview is in stark contrast to CNN anchor Anderson Cooper‘s interview of juror B37, whose identity was hidden in darkness earlier this month. Juror B37 also hastily announced and subsequently canceled a book about the trial.

Portions of “Maddy”‘s interview will air tonight on “ABC World news with Diane Sawyer” and on “Nightline,” with the full interview airing on “GMA” tomorrow morning.

19 months devoted to racially sensationalized propaganda and nothing to show for it. GZ was acquitted and the prophesied violent mass rioting blew over like a whiff of smoke.......

As you may recall from your going on three year day and night stint on the Casey thread, Florida is a Sunshine Law state, just about anyone could have discovered who the driver-owner of the vehicle was.

The vehicle was turning onto a highway approach at a slow rate of speed and slipped off the pavement into a rut and gently tipping on it's side.

Aside from lousy driving their mistake was letting O'Mara talk them into holding a press conference.

Juror B-29, the Hispanic lady has been interviewed by ABC's Robyn Roberts, to soon to be broadcast piece is said to be quite interesting.

Also, the name of the deputy who investigated the roadside crash that Zimmerman assisted has supposedly found it's way to the internet along with his facebook page. He's said to be a huge fan of George and also a 2nd amendment freak.

Oh, and the story about the baby in Georgia who was shot in the face by two black teens is back in the news. Georgia's sunshine laws are much different than Florida's, the facts take a while to develop.

.
Sure, the Spokesperson for the Seminole Sheriff's Office gave no details about the roll-over other than George Zimmerman and other man were involved in the rescue of an unidentified family of four, so why not an unofficial Facebook page to fill in the blanks. We believe everything we read on Facebook!
