A South Jersey oil spill sends over 100 gallons of diesel oil into the Delaware River

    The Coast Guard and clean-up crews were called to the scene of a diesel oil spill on the banks of the Delaware River.


    A broken pipeline was found to be the cause of the 600-gallon spill that occurred at the Hess Corporation, near Pennsauken New Jersey, late Friday morning.

    According to ABC News, only about 100 gallons of the spill made it into the river. The rest was collected in a nearby containment ditch.
