Man accused of throwing objects at cars on I-26

A Gaston man is charged with three counts of attempted murder after throwing large pieces of rock-like material at cars on an interstate highway, according to arrest warrants.

Tyler Chase Loyd, 20, threw objects at three transfer trucks near exit 119 on I-26 during the early morning hours of May 12, detectives said. One of the objects crashed through a windshield and struck a man in the shoulder, according to an arrest warrant.

Investigators said Loyd admitted driving a vehicle deputies found parked in the same area of the incident.

Deputies arrested Loyd Thursday without incident. He’s being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
