BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Tesoro Corp. says an excavator struck an oil pipeline in western North Dakota, spilling about 75 barrels of crude, or about 3,150 gallons.

The company says it happened Wednesday afternoon near Cartwright, which is west of Watford City near the Montana border.

Tesoro says the release of oil has been stopped and about 70 barrels' worth of oil has been recovered. The company says there were no injuries, and no impacts to wildlife were reported.
