COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A woman has been sentenced to prison after being found guilty of aggravated vehicular homicide in connection with the death of a 7-month-old boy in June 2016.
In connection with? She hit the father and baby with her vehicle. See below.
Muhuba Ali Mohamed, 32, was accused of running off the right side of the roadway on Westerville Road in June 2016, striking a mailbox, and hitting a father who was pushing the baby in a stroller.
Mohamed was given 3 years in prison, as well as a lifetime suspension of her driver’s license.
As reported previously via Ohio: Somali Muslim refugee convicted of vehicular homicide of 7-month-old boy in stroller
Mohamed, of the Northeast Side, is a native of Somalia.
Both sides agreed that Micah Ferebee was in a stroller being pushed by his father on the shoulder of Westerville Road just north of Innis Road at about 5 p.m. when Mohamed’s northbound Toyota Rav4 veered off the road and struck them from behind. The SUV also ran over a mailbox, went through three yards and eventually slammed into a house.
The father, Kenan M. Ferebee, 24, did not suffer major injuries. The baby died of head injuries shortly after being taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The evidence, which included video from a camera on the house struck, showed that Mohamed never hit the brakes or even turned the wheel to avoid the collisions after her vehicle left the roadway in broad daylight. There was no alcohol or drugs in her system.
Testimony also showed that she was in a one-car crash just four days earlier, when she veered off I-71 in Delaware County and into a barrier in the median.
In both crashes, Mohamed was driving with a temporary permit but didn’t have a licensed driver with her as required by law.
So, a Somali Muslim immigrant/refugee who didn’t even have a drivers license struck and killed a seven-month old baby and only got three years jail while a guy who vandalized a mosque got 15 years prison?
Why isn’t she being deported?
