A motorcyclist who was killed in a collision with another vehicle in San Francisco's Lower Haight neighborhood on Monday night has been identified by the medical examiner's office as HGTV "Curb Appeal" host William Beckwith.
The collision was reported at about 8:30 p.m. Monday near Oak and Steiner streets.
Beckwith, a 38-year-old San Francisco resident, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
The 30-year-old driver of the other vehicle stopped at the scene and cooperated with investigators, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.
Beckwith was a co-host of the HGTV show "Curb Appeal," in which the TV crew oversaw the makeover of home exteriors.
A Facebook page has been created in Beckwith's memory at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1383520048562840/.
On the page, his girlfriend Yulia Korneeva wrote, "My love: so kind, so bright, adventurous and strong. You are loved by so many good people! I wish you could stay with us for way longer."
Officials with the network were not immediately available to comment on the death.
