another State Highway 1 big truck crash

How did this truck-trailer manage to roll over in a 50 km/h area?  Was it simply going far too fast? photo and report:

Motorists heading south on State Highway 1 this morning faced long delays after a trailer unit on a truck flipped near Plimmerton. The accident happened about 6.30 am at the roundabout 100 metres north of St Theresa's Catholic Church.
The police spokesman said it was a 20-tonne trailer with a container on it.
A large crane arrived at the scene about 8 am and took about an hour to lift the trailer back on its wheels.
