It wouldn't at all be surprising to see that speed was indeed a factor here, but it's important to understand that authorities are not generally experienced with commercial vehicle wrecks. Something like a cargo shift or a mechanical issue can easily slip through the cracks when authorities aren't sure what they're looking at. That's why it's best to avoid jumping to conclusions about crashes like this until there's been proper independent investigations.
