UPDATE Monday, Oct. 9, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.

The Sevier County District Attorney General has identified the victims involved in the Jefferson City crash over the weekend.

Brittany L. Brown died after investigators said the SUV she was riding in crashed into Jefferson City Police Department Sgt. Scott Winstead's vehicle. The driver of the car has been identified as Kelly L. Livesay.

Carson-Newman's public safety officer, Lucas Trent, was also in the car with Sgt. Winstead at the time of the crash.

The Dandridge Police Dept. said Sgt. Winstead and Officer Trent were struck by a speeding SUV late Friday night. Sgt. Winstead was flown by Lifestar to UT Medical Center.

Jefferson City Police said Carson-Newman University students near the scene likely saved the lives of both Sgt. Scott Winstead and Carson-Newman's public safety officer Lucas Trent.

"My first reaction was go pull the cop out and two other guys came and helped me. Some girl brought a fire extinguisher and we put the fire out and pulled him out," said Christopher Proffitt, who jumped in to help after the crash.

Proffitt said Sgt. Winstead was badly injured.

"He had glass on his face and bleeding from his forehead and I got him halfway out and he said his hip was hurting so we slowed down," Proffitt explained.

Proffitt said he has been keeping in contact with Sgt. Winstead and was told by Winstead he wanted to thank the students who were involved in helping them.

"I texted him to make sure he was okay and he said yea, and he said he wanted to meet us three that pulled him out and he said his family was very thankful and I said, I was just helping. God bless you and thank you for your service," Proffitt said.

District Attorney General Jimmy Dunn is investigating the case further. His office told 10News they have put a Rule 16 on the case which means they have chosen to withhold evidence prior to prosecution.
