The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said there are no updates in the case involving the death of a 7-month-old boy.

Thursday afternoon Kenan Ferebee, 23, had just left a drive-thru convenient store and was walking down Westerville Road. He was pushing his 7-month-old son, Micah, in a stroller.

Police said 31-year-old Muhuba Mohamed was driving an SUV when she lost control of her car and drove off the road, hitting the Ferebees.

Micah died as a result of his injuries. Kenan was taken to a local hospital and is expected to be OK. The driver of the SUV was unharmed.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said there were no new pieces of information in the case Friday and it has no time table for if and when possible charges could be filed.

Police say Mohamed's vehicle hit a residence on Westerville Road. The man who lives there said he saw the whole thing unfold from start to finish.

He said he believes he saw Mohamed holding a cell phone at the time of the crash, but investigators say an exact cause has not been determined and distracted driving has not been named a possible cause.
