On Friday, City Councilor Kendra Lara crashed into a house after she veered off of the road on Centre Street.

WBUR reports that a police report shows that Lara was driving with a revoked license in a car that was unregistered and uninsured. It also had an expired inspection sticker. Lara was driving with her son, Zaire, who was brought to a local hospital for stitches. BPD contacted the Department of Children and Families after the crash because Lara’s son was not secured in a proper booster seat.

City Council President Ed Flynn released the following statement re: Lara’s list of violations:

WBUR goes on to report that this is not Lara’s first run-in with multiple driving violations. According to the article, Lara’s Massachusetts driving record, under her previously used name Kendra Hicks, shows multiple violations and sanctions, including driving a vehicle in Dorchester without registration in 2010. The record also shows Lara failed to appear at court in Connecticut after allegedly running a traffic sign in 2014.

Recently, Lara was in the news for releasing a statement re: 381 Old Colony Ave investigation and accused colleagues or “homophobic and transphobic rhetoric.”  You can read about this here.

      She needs to join Rachel Rollins and Monica Grant Cannon; all corrupt, play the race card and think they are above the law pulling in a six figure salary. Get rid of them. None of those WOKE folks will get my vote!

    …Eddie. Personally, I don’t know how he lasted this long. Going into that sh!t-show every day, knowing that every single word out of your mouth is going to fall on deaf ears and dismissed as “the rantings of yet another White problem”.
    Frank saw the writing on the wall after his district was allowed to be eviscerated for no other reason than it was “Too White”.
    So good luck, Ed. Good luck Erin. Good luck, Boston, actually.
    It’s been nice knowin’ ya.

    Oh, boy! I’m not a Boston resident, but that Boston City Council Kendra Lara sounds like a dangerous piece of work. The fact that she’s still got her license and is still driving around, despite all those law violations and crashes that’s she’s been in shows that something is really wrong with our system. Here’s hoping that I never come in contact with this woman, much less get in an automobile accident with her. She needs to have her license pulled!

    It’s amazing that she hasn’t yet killed or permanently maimed anybody in a car crash. Or has she?

    Sorry–I made a slight grammatical mistake in my message above about my opinion of Boston City Councilor. I meant to say Boston City Councilor Kendra Lara in my comment. Again, my apologies for the typo.

    Oh, boy! That City Councilor Kendra Lara sounds like a dangerous piece of work! She needs to have her license pulled, and to be kept off the road before she permanently injures or kills somebody.
