According to CNN the show released a statement saying, "The HGTV family is deeply saddened by Bill's tragic death and we mourn his loss along with his many family and friends who will miss his creativity, adventurous spirit and general love of life".

Beckwith’s motorcycle collided with a vehicle in San Francisco’s Lower Haight neighborhood. The actor co-hosted “Curb Appeal” with Chip Wade, John Gidding, and Kimberly Lacy. The team made over the exterior of a house each episode.

While attending the University of Montana, Beckwith spent his summers learning martial arts and restoring cabins in the historic fly-ranch in the Wyoming Mountains. He grew up on a 60 acre vegetable farm and loved to restore the old buildings on the property.

Us Magazine reports that Beckwith died at San Francisco. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured in the crash. The identity of the other driver has not yet been released to the public.
