While it seems like the most likely explanation here is that a driver was going around a curve too fast, it's important to ensure even less likely possible factors get attention. For all we know, this was the result of something like a cargo shift, a tire failure, mechanical defects, poor training, over-working drivers, some other reckless driver that left the scene, etc. Even the authorities can be quick to jump to conclusions. That's why getting folks the help they deserve is usually a matter of ensuring independent professionals look into the details as soon as possible.
