Pipeline breach spills oil on Crow Reservation

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A breached oil pipeline has spilled an undetermined volume of crude on the Crow Indian Reservation in southeastern Montana after possibly leaking for months before it was discovered, a tribal official said Wednesday.

The spill was discovered earlier this week by a rancher checking his cows several miles east of Fort Smith in a remote area near the Montana-Wyoming border, said Vernon Hill with Crow Disaster and Emergency Services.

Crude oil could be seen on top of the soil in a deep ravine covering an area about 15 yards wide and 100 yards long, Hill said.
