Actor Ben Woolf dies while recovering from car clip accident

American Horror Story star Ben Woolf has died in hospital while recovering from surgery to repair injuries he sustained after he was struck by a car in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actor's head was clipped by a car's wing mirror while he was crossing a street on 19 February (15), and he was admitted to a hospital in critical condition.


Woolf underwent surgery and was believed to be out of danger, but he died on Monday (23Feb15) after suffering a stroke.


Woolf was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism when he was an infant. The condition caused his frame to shrink.


The actor was also a preschool teacher.


His film credits include Dead Kansas, Unlucky Charms and Woggie, but he'll best be remembered as Meep and Infantata in American Horror Story. He has been a semi-regular on the show since 2011.
