American Horror Story actor Ben Woolf is reportedly in a critical condition after being hit by a car in Hollywood.

TMZ reports that Woolf, who is 4ft 4ins tall, was struck in the head by the mirror of the SUV as he crossed a road on Thursday evening.

Police told the website that the driver would not face prosecution because Woolf was “jaywalking” – an offence in the US for pedestrians who do not use crossings or give way to drivers.
