On Friday, December 27th, the estranged wife of George Zimmerman, Shellie,
was involved in an
automobile accident just around 11:30am.
Shellie was driving her own automobile when she was struck by another driver
while going through an intersection. Neither Shellie nor the other driver
sustained any serious injuries. However, Winter Park Police said they
detained the other driver for questioning under suspicion of driving under
the influence of alcohol. Additional details surrounding the accident
were not provided by authorities and no word was given on whether any
charges or traffic citations were pending.
Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce from George Zimmerman last year in
September. Shellie had been estranged from her husband for several months
prior, largely due to the controversy surrounding the Trayvon Martin murder
trial. The divorce filing came just two months after George was acquitted
of murdering Trayvon Martin and a week after she pleaded guilty to perjury
in his case.
