'American Horror Story' actor Ben Woolf dies after car accident.

Ben Woolf, an actor known for his roles on two seasons of the television show "American Horror Story," died on Monday in Los Angeles at the age of 34.

The cause was a stroke related to complications from injuries suffered when he was struck by a car, his publicist told media.

Mr. Woolf, who stood at 4 feet 4 inches tall, was struck by the side-view mirror of a passing car in Hollywood at around 9 p.m. Thursday, said Sara Faden, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. She said the driver remained on the scene and that the department was not treating the incident as a crime. "Unfortunately it was just a tragic accident," she said.

Born Benjamin Eric Woolf in Fort Collins, Colo., Mr. Woolf, grew up in Fairfield, Iowa, and moved to California in 2010 to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. "We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben," his family said in a statement. "He touched so many hearts in his 34 years. His memory will live on within each of us and within his work."
