Merrillville defense attorney Garry Weiss, 53, was killed Tuesday night in a car crash in northern Indiana.

Police responded to the three-car crash around 10 p.m. Tuesday in Merrillville. The preliminary investigation shows a Jeep Grand Cherokee ran a stop sign and struck two cars, one of which Weiss was driving. The driver of the Grand Cherokee and the two people inside the Chevy Blazer were also killed. Police believe speed was a contributing factor in the crash.

Weiss had his own general practice firm in Merrillville with two other attorneys and also served as a public defender in Gary City Court and Lake Superior Court. Most recently, Weiss served as defense counsel for Gary firefighter Carlton Davis Jr., who was convicted earlier this week in Lake County on various dog fighting and animal cruelty charges.
