LOS ANGELES — Ben Woolf, an actor on "American Horror Story," has died after being injured in a street accident, a spokesman said. He was 34.

Woolf died Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, publicist Zack Teperman said. Woolf's family was at his side. The 4-foot-4 actor was hospitalized in critical condition after he was hit by the side mirror of a passing vehicle on an Los Angeles-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.

"He was a tremendous professional and an incredibly kind person, beloved by the 'American Horror Story' family," FX and the show's producers said in a statement.
