A fatal collision between a motorcycle and a vehicle Monday night at the intersection of Oak and Steiner left the motorcyclist dead from head trauma. Today, Haighteration brings word that the victim was Billy Beckwith, a carpenter and co-host on HGTV's Curb Appeal.

The accident occurred at around 8:30 p.m. Monday night. Beckwith was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died of his injuries. According to eyewitnesses, the driver of the car was turning left from Steiner onto Oak when the motorcycle came up Steiner headed the opposite direction. The motorcycle struck the car as it was turning, flinging Beckwith onto the street.

Beckwith was a 38-year-old San Francisco resident whose company, BB Design Build, provided construction services around the Bay Area. Curb Appeal has more on Beckwith's background:

Born on a 60-acre vegetable farm in midcoast Maine, Bill was taught by his father to grow food, but Bill found himself drawn to working on the old structures on the property and building things in the farm's workshop. Bill later attended the University of Montana, where he studied English and martial arts. During summer breaks he worked in the mountains of Wyoming restoring the cabins of a historic fly-fishing ranch.

As evidenced by his Facebook page, Beckwith was an avid motorcycle enthusiast, traveller and outdoorsman. A memorial page has already been set up for Beckwith with photos provided by family and friends.
