Director of Compliance, Roger Weeks said Roads and Maritime Services Inspectors attended the crash about 3am, finding the southbound B Double on its side about 3km south of Goulburn.
"The truck which was carrying mixed general freight between Sydney and Melbourne struck the guard rail on the right hand side of the road before veering across two lanes to come to rest on its side on the road shoulder," Mr Weeks said.
"The crash caused one lane of the highway to be closed for several hours while the truck was recovered.
