The Curb Appeal carpenter and co-host was hit by a car while driving his motorbike in San Francisco on Monday night and died later of at a local hospital. Bill Beckwith was 38. The accident occurred around 8:30 PM when Beckwith’s bike was hit by a car turning the corner of Oak and Steiner in SF’s Lower Haight neighborhood. The HGTV home improvement series co-host was knocked from his bike and suffered a head injury, and was pronounced dead later at San Francisco General Hospital, the city’s medical examiner confirms. “My love, so kind and bright, adventurous and strong. You are loved by so many good people! I wish you could stay with us for way longer,” wrote Beckwith’s girlfriend Yulia Korneeva, on a Facebook memorial page set up today by family and friends. Curb Appeal has been running on HGTV since 2002. Beckwith, the founder of BB Design Build, joined the show in 2010 and co-hosts with John Gidding and Kimberly Lacy.
