The crash occurred near the city’s Haight-Ashbury district Monday night when the motorcycle he was riding was struck by a car. The San Francisco medical examiner identified 38-year-old Bill Beckwith as the victim of head trauma. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver of the car, aged 30, is cooperating with the investigation.
