An underground pipeline connecting San Joaquin Valley oil fields with Los Angeles refineries ruptured Tuesday in southern Kern County, sending about 100,000 gallons of crude oil oozing down a creek bed and shutting down northbound lanes of the Golden State Freeway. Officials from the California Department of Fish and Game had not fully assessed the environmental damage of the spill, one of the worst in recent years along a route followed by three other oil pipelines.
