NextImg:Anti-cop Boston City Councilor driving with ‘revoked license’ crashes car with son inside into house

A controversial, defund-the-police Boston City Councilor crashed her car into a house, injuring herself and her 7-year-old son.

Kendra Lara, 33, was driving with a “revoked license” in an unregistered car without insurance and an expired inspection sticker and her son, Zaire, was not in a booster seat at the time of the crash, according to a police report obtained by The Post.

Zaire was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital where he received “several stitches” and is expected to be all right, her office said in a statement quoted by the Boston Globe.

Lara was once described as “the first black socialist ever to be elected to the Boston City Council,” and confirmed in a text message that she was involved in a crash Friday, her office said, adding she was with her son in the emergency room. Lara reportedly suffered “some cuts and will probably require some stitches,” her spokesman said.

Lara’s car was totaled in the wreck.

Lara’s spokesman said the councilor was driving when she swerved to avoid hitting another car and crashed through a fence and yard before striking a house.

According to the police report obtained by The Post, Lara was driving an unregistered vehicle and her license had been revoked.

It further alleged that her child was not in a booster seat, which is a violation of state law for children younger than 8 or shorter than 57 inches.

Lara’s name was redacted in the official report but her name was visible in a draft police report obtained by the Boston Herald.

The driver of the vehicle Lara apparently cited as the reason she swerved to avoid an accident contradicted Lara’s version of events, stating he had barely begun to pull out of his parking space when he noticed a car traveling at a high rate of speed which passed by him, then suddenly turned left and crashed into the house, according to the police report.

Lara’s car went through the metal fence at the home, then crashed into and drove over the bushes before smashing into the porch and foundation of the house, causing considerable damage, the report stated.

According to the police report, a 51A report — a form required to be submitted to the Department of Children and Families when “child abuse or neglect” is suspected — could be filed “due to neglect and failure to use a proper car seat for the child’s safety.”

In addition to reports, backed up by posts Lara has made on Twitter, that she supports the defunding of police and the abolition of prisons, she also lives in income restricted housing meant for people with lower salaries, according to several accounts.

She was also the subject of a vulgar tape circulating for the past five months that apparently shows Owen Thomas, a Boston charter school teacher, talking happily about having just completed a sex act with the public official.

Lara and her chief of staff, Lee Nave Jr., did not respond to numerous calls, emails texts and direct messages sent to them by The Post.

When Thomas was reached by phone, he said, “Aw, no, I’m not going to comment on that,” and hung up.
