‘American Horror Story’ Actor Ben Woolf in Critical Condition After Being Struck by Car Mirror
Ben Woolf, an actor on the immensely popular AMC drama American Horror Story: Freak Show, was hit in the head by a moving car last night (Feb. 19) and remains in critical condition today, according to a report from TMZ.
According to law enforcement sources at TMZ, Woolf, who is four feet four inches tall, was hit in the head by the mirror of an SUV while he was crossing the street on Hollywood Boulevard. From there, he was taken to a nearby hospital and is reportedly still in intensive care. TMZ goes on to report that the driver of the vehicle that struck Woolf was not at fault, because Woolf was jaywalking at the time of the collision.
Woolf's publicist, Zack Teperman, issued a statement to the Associated Press about the incident, saying (quote via ABC News), "Ben is one of the kindest and hardest-working people I know. His condition remains critical at this time, and we ask that everyone please keep Ben in your thoughts and prayers, and respect his family's privacy during this time."
Although Woolf is best known for his role as Meep on American Horror Story: Freak Show, he also had roles in the movies Unlucky Charms, Dead Kansas and Haunting Charles Manson. Woolf also worked as a stunt performer on the television show Dexter, according to a report from Bustle.
We wish Woolf the best, and hope he is able to recover as quickly and as fully as possible.
