"Carlsbad band Stranded looks to raise awareness of oilfield traffic in new album"

Raul Ortega sees the danger on U.S. Highway 285 every day.

The 52-year-old pipeline operator drives to and from work on the highway known for heavy oilfield traffic, and recently a string of fatal accidents.

Ortega also started playing drums for Carlsbad rock band Stranded about a year ago, and saw a chance to raise awareness of the peril he and his fellow oilfield workers and Carlsbad residents face every day on that road.
