American Horror Story star Ben Woolf, who played Meep on the FX show, has died after getting hit by a car last week, according to Variety. He was 34.

While he was crossing a street in Hollywood last Thursday night, Ben was struck in the head by the car mirror of an SUV. The 4'4 actor, who was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism as a child, was later transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

"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."

In addition to his role as Meep, Ben also played Infantata on the show's first season, and had roles in films Dead Kansas and Haunting Charles Manson. After news of his death surfaced, American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy posted a tribute to Ben, tweeting, "RIP Ben Woolf. One of the most inspirational people I've ever met."
