Ben Woolf Dies

Woolf was hit by a car in Los Angeles last week, and suffered a severe head injury. The actor was reportedly clipped by the side view mirror of an SUV as he was jaywalking in Hollywood. On Monday afternoon, Woolf, who’d been heavily sedated at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, died from a stroke, reported TMZ.

“We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben,” Woolf’s family said in a statement. “He touched so many hearts in his 34 years.”

“Ben was one-of-a-kind, and will never be forgotten,” said a statement from Woolf’s agency, ZTPR. “The time we all shared together will be remembered forever.”

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy also remembered Woolf, tweeting, “RIP Ben Woolf. One of the most inspirational people I’ve ever met.”

Since Woolf was jaywalking, the driver of the vehicle was not ticketed, nor will he be arrested.
