An Exxon oil pipeline ruptures in Montana spilling tens of gallons of crude oil into the Yellowstone river on Saturday. Crews are working to see how badly the spill will damage the environment. The oil has drenched river banks and vegegtaion. Exxon says they're trying their best to sop it up but can't use boats since the river is too dangerous. Exxon's President apologized for the mess, and says they're working to ensure wildlife and the area isn't put in danger.
