(Newser) – Ben Woolf, an actor on American Horror Story, has died after being injured in a street accident, a spokesman says. He was 34. Woolf died yesterday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his family at his side, his publicist says. The 4-foot-4 actor was hospitalized in critical condition after he was hit by the side mirror of a passing vehicle on an LA-area street. The motorist, who stopped at the scene Thursday night, wasn't cited or arrested. Woolf was a cast member on the FX show in its first season in 2011, when he played a character called the Infantata. In the latest installment, American Horror Story: Freak Show, he appeared as Meep.
