Posted on 8/5/2016

Defendant: Muhuba Ali Mohamed

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien stated, “A father, who was pushing a stroller carrying his 7 month old child, were both victims of an unlicensed driver and unfortunately, this baby died from injuries sustained on that day.”


            The Franklin County Grand Jury today indicted 31-year-old Muhuba Ali Mohamed on one count of Aggravated Vehicular Homicide, a felony of the second degree.


            On June 2nd of this year at approximately 4:50 p.m., Ms. Mohamed was driving a blue 2002 Toyota Rav4 and traveling north on State Route 3 (Westerville Rd).  She ran off the right side of the roadway in front of 3490 Westerville Road striking a mailbox and then a father who was pushing his 7 month old baby in a stroller heading northbound on the side of the roadway.  Her car continued on and came to rest after hitting a house at 3506 Westerville Rd.


            The father and son were identified as 23-year-old Kenan Michael Ferebee and his son, Micah Ferebee.  Kenan Michael Ferebee was not significantly injured in the collision, however his son, Micah, was pronounced dead at Children’s Hospital a short time later.


            According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Ms. Mohamed possessed a Temporary Ohio Driver’s Permit which required the presence of a validly licensed driver in the vehicle with her.  According to witnesses at the scene, no one else was in her car at the time of the collision, and it appeared she had her cell phone in her hand.


            Ms. Mohamed voluntarily submitted to a blood draw and no drugs or alcohol were found in her system.  O’Brien further stated, “Four days prior to this Aggravated Vehicular Homicide, Ms. Mohamed was the driver in a single car collision in Delaware County and was cited by the Ohio State Highway Patrol for Failure to Control.  She was alone in her vehicle at the time of that collision as well.”
