PARLEYS CANYON, Utah — Witnesses say a man who was being pursued by police in Parleys Canyon on Sunday was reckless, out of control and possibly even suicidal.

The man died after crashing into a large tanker truck. Some bloggers on the Internet Monday praised police for stopping the man before any innocent victims were hurt, while others questioned whether the chase should have been called off earlier because of the risk to other motorists.
