HGTV “Curb Appeal” host Bill Beckwith was killed in a motorcycle accident in San Francisco. According to CNN on Dec. 4, the HGTV host was riding his motorcycle on Monday night when he collided with a vehicle in the Lower Haight neighborhood.
The 38-year-old “Curb Appeal” star collided with a vehicle near Oak and Steiner streets at about 8:30 p.m. and transported to an area hospital. He was pronounced dead when he arrived at San Francisco General Hospital.
Beckwith co-hosted “Curb Appeal” with John Gidding, Chip Wade and Kimberly Lacy. The show, which is now out of production, dedicated each episode to the makeover of a house’s exterior. This gave the house more “Curb Appeal” as the title of the show suggests.
Ironically Beckwith happened upon an accident back in October and he shared his experience of that day with his friends via his Facebook page. Beckwith wrote:
"Was the first one out of my truck this a.m. at a head-on collision, made sure everyone was breathing and then directed traffic," he wrote. "A solid reminder that our lives can change at any instant, and to be grateful for what I have right now."
It was just a few months later that his own destiny changed in an instant.
