Oil spills into Yellowstone River after Exxon Mobil pipeline ruptures

• Eric W. Dolan via
An Exxon Mobil pipeline that runs under the Yellowstone River in Montana ruptured Friday night and leaked for about a half-hour.

The New York Times reported that the town of Lauren, downstream from the rupture, had to be evacuated because officials feared a possible explosion.

Exxon said it had no information on the cause of the incident, which originated from a 12-inch pipeline that runs from Silver Tip to refineries in Billings.
