Speed is being looked at as a factor in a truck crash at Botany in Sydney yesterday that shut a main access route to the port.

A truck hauling a 12-metre shipping container full of recyclable rubbish tipped about 7.10pm while making a right turn from General Holmes Drive into Foreshore Road.

Motorists stopped to assist the driver, who was found on the ground in front of the truck. The 54-year-old truckie is being treated for non-life-threatening neck and back injuries.

"Police are now investigating the cause of the crash and whether speed was a contributing factor," a statement from New South Wales Police says.

The incident closed Foreshore Road until about 10pm.
