A woman charged in the drunk driving death of a 22-year-old driver in Surrey, last year has pleaded guilty to the crime.
Thirty-four-year-old Natasha Leigh Warren was charged with impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and failure to stop at the scene of an accident.
Kassandra Kaulius was on her way home from a softball game in May 2011 when her car was struck by Warren's van after she left a Vancouver Canucks' celebration.
The university student died at the scene, while Warren tried to flee, but was arrested by police a short distance away.
Kaulius's family has founded the group Families for Justice to call for stricter drunk driving laws. (News 1130, The Canadian Press)
