Woolf died Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, publicist Zack Teperman said. Woolf’s family was at his side.

The 4-foot-4 actor was hospitalized in critical condition after he was hit by the side mirror of a passing vehicle on an LA-area street.

The motorist, who stopped at the scene Thursday night, wasn’t cited or arrested.

Woolf was a cast member on the FX show in its first season, in 2011, when he played a character called the Infantata. In the latest installment, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” he appeared as Meep.

“He was a tremendous professional and an incredibly kind person, beloved by the `American Horror Story’ family,” FX and the show’s producers said in a statement.

Members of Woolf’s family said in a statement that they were overwhelmed by the love and support they’ve received for him.

Teperman, his publicist, called Woolf “one-of-a-kind,” a caring and hard-working man.
