“American Horror Story: Freak Show” star Ben Woolf died Monday, TMZ reported. He was 34.
Woolf, who played the beloved character Meep on “AHS,” died from a head injury he sustained when he was hit by a car Thursday. Woolf was apparently jaywalking across a street in Hollywood when he was hit in the head by the side view mirror of an SUV. The motorist was not arrested -- or even ticketed. Woolf stood 4 feet 4 inches.
After the accident, he was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angels and heavily sedated. He suffered a stroke and died Monday, a source told TMZ.
"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,” his family told the news site.
"Ben was one-of-a-kind and will never be forgotten. The time we all shared together will be remembered forever," Woolf's publicist Zack Teperman said in a statement to KABC.
His organs are being donated and will help nearly 50 people, TMZ said.
His “AHS” co-star Naomi Grossman, who plays Pepper, told E! News Saturday the news of his accident was “awful.” She continued: “We're all in contact and from what I understand Kathy Bates tweeted that he was out of surgery and he's now in stable yet still critical condition. So we're just hoping for the best. I'm waiting like for any moment they're going to tell me I can go visit and I'll be there."
“AHS” fans flocked to Twitter to mourn Woolf’s untimely death. Many referred to him as Meep, his character from the FX show who was killed earlier in the season.
