Apr 13, 2012 - WOMAN CHARGED IN DRIVING DEATH OF KASSANDRA KAULIUS GETS BAIL

A Surrey woman accused of driving while impaired and killing 22-year-old Kassandra Kaulius was released on bail Thursday.

Natasha Leigh Warren, 34, made her first appearance that day in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey. She is charged with dangerous driving causing death, impaired driving causing death, causing an accident resulting in death, and failure to stop at an accident causing bodily harm.

Warren was released on her own recognizance on $5,000 bail.

Kaulius, a Surrey Storm softball pitcher and coach, was driving home from a game on May 3, 2011 when a white panel van allegedly ran a red light at 152nd Street and 64th Avenue and collided with the driver’s side of Kaulius’s red BMW.

Witnesses reported that the van’s driver fled, but she was arrested a short time later in a nearby wooded area. She was not injured.

Kaulius was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to online court records, Warren has no previous charges in B.C. and police say she is not known to them.

Warren’s next court date is scheduled for May 18.

A candlelight vigil has been planned to mark the one-year anniversary of Kaulius’s death. It will take place around 8 p.m. on May 3 at Sullivan Park in Surrey
