These reports really don't say all that much. One witness said the victim may have been speeding, and that's certainly worth considering, but what about other possibilities? Was there debris in the road? Did a tire blowout? Did a mechanical defect cause the car to lose control? Did the driver experience a medical emergency? Even if something seems unlikely, getting people the help they need means letting the evidence speak for itself. It's important to make sure the crash is in the hands of professionals who can actually get that evidence without letting important details slip through the cracks.
