The bottom of my car scraped a really high bump in a driveway and know there is a really loud exhaust leak. Besides sounding like a '79 camaro now, are there any dangers in not getting it fixed immediately?

Besides wanting to make sure that it's fixed before a SMOG check, I would assume there will be no more danger than a buildup of carbon deposits around the area that has a hole... and, of course... the obvious noise pollution from it.

Only trivial issues such as carbon monoxide entering your interior...

Seriously, exhaust leaks are serious business. Please get your car up in the air and find out what the problem is. It may be just as simple as welding up a small crack. If there is more serious damage, then you'll be able to determine what your alternatives are. Thisis also a great time to inspect/replace your exhaust hangars (the rubber donuts). They are cheap and the only hassle is getting to them, so while the car is in the air it's the time to do it--very easy. If there is substantial damage from your bump, or if there is serious rust, there are some relatively low cost alternatives...although if the cost of exhaust parts scares you then you're driving the wrong car. Check out the Ansa euro exhaust parts for your car--they flow well, are OEM quality and cost much, much less than dealer prices. YOu can find them at Bekkers and maybe at FastLane. Otherwise, Sebring made many of the AMG systems and you can get authentic AMG quality without necessarily paying full AMG prices. Hope this helps.
