Ben Woolf has died. According to TMZ, the American Horror Story actor died in the hospital just days after getting hit by a car in Los Angeles last week. The side mirror of a car reportedly "clipped him in the head," causing serious trauma. He was heavily sedated at Cedars Sinai Hospital but was listed in stable condition. Sadly, he suffered a stroke on Monday.
"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben. He touched so many hearts in his 34 years," said Woolf's family in a statement.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Woolf was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism when he was young. He was four feet, four inches tall. The driver of the car that hit Woolf was not charged because Woolf was reportedly jaywalking at the time of the accident. According to Entertainment Weekly, the accident occurred around 9 p.m. on Thursday.
Ben Woolf was a staple on two seasons of American Horror Story. He was in Season 1, and he was in the last season entitled Freak Show. Many people truly enjoyed his work on the show, and those who knew him otherwise have had nothing but wonderful things to say about him. Fans are absolutely devastated.
