    Section of Freeway in Atlanta Buckles, Launching Motorcycle Rider Into Air

    “A section of freeway in Atlanta, Georgia, is closed after part of the roadway bulged up from the ground and launched a motorcycle rider into the air Monday afternoon.

    The DeKalb County Police Dapartment initially said an underground gas leak caused the “defect” on westbound Interstate 20 in the southeast part of the city.

    Fire officials later said crews were pumping concrete into old, abandoned gas lines under the freeway and there was some sort of malfunction that caused a build-up of air pressure. The air pressure eventually caused the ground under the roadway to surge upward.”

    (Der Spiegel hates both Putin and Trump, so they want to push Merkel in the arms of the Chinese, the last two globalists standing).
