    Bill Beckwith died in San Francisco on Monday night.

    A co-host of the HGTV show "Curb Appeal" has been killed in a motorcycle accident in San Francisco.

    The San Francisco medical examiner identified 38-year-old Bill Beckwith as the victim of a crash near the city's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood Monday night. He was riding a motorcycle that was struck by a car.

    Beckwith was one of the three hosts of "Curb Appeal," which features home renovations. He was a carpenter and general contractor who grew up on a farm in Maine and owned his own Bay Area construction business.

    HGTV says in a statement that his creativity, adventurous spirit and general love of life will be missed.

    Police say Beckwith suffered head trauma and was pronounced dead at a hospital. The 30-year-old driver of the car that struck him is cooperating with the investigation.
