Posted: Updated:
PENSACOLA, Fl. - A single vehicle crash Saturday night in Pensacola has claimed the life of an 18-year-old female and her baby.

Schintai Eberhart, 18, of Pensacola was ejected from the vehicle. She died at a local hospital after undergoing an emergency C-section; the baby died soon after birth, said Officer Jason Browning.

Eberhart was a front-seat passenger in a 2006 Lexus driven by her sister – Lindsey Eberhart, 18, of Pensacola.

Browning said the crash occurred around 7:45 p.m. Saturday. Lindsey Eberhart was driving the vehicle westbound on Brent Lane from Ninth Avenue when she lost control and the vehicle hit a curb near Evergreen Road. It then struck a power pole and flipped a couple times
before stopping on its left side. The power pole broke from the impact.

Lindsey Eberhart was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The left rear passenger – Deven Heflin, 12, of Pensacola – was also hospitalized with minor injuries. Deven is the brother of Lindsey and Schintai Eberhart.

The right rear passenger was Tristan Horne, 18, of Pensacola. He received a minor hand injury, Browning said.

Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation; seatbelt usage on all occupants has not yet been determined.
