The Interstate 20 WB has buckled due to gas leak near Gresham Rd, Atlanta on April 17, 2017.

Viewers sent pictures of a large, cracked bump in the HOV lane between the Flat Shoals Road exit and Gresham Road overpass.

DeKalb police initially said that the buckling was caused by a gas leak, but a Southern Company spokeswoman said the incident “was not caused by and did not involve the release of natural gas.

Viewers say the buckling is two to three feet high.

DeKalb County Fire Rescue said the driver of a motorcycle was critically injured after he was thrown 10 to 15 feet onto the roadway by the buckling.
