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 Los Angeles-area street.

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