Authorities say Knox County Deputy Keith King was responding to a call about Davila driving eastbound in the westbound lanes of Interstate 74 when he was struck.
King sustained non-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital on July 15. The 27-year-old has been with the department since 2008.
A family friend says Davila remains hospitalized in serious but stable condition.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Davila has an attorney.
