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.
