    A woman stood still as a stone statue

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes? Do I need to add "her" at the end of my sentence?

    A woman stood still as a stone statue beside the motorway as the traffic roared passed.

    If you don't put a comma after "stood", you should write as still.

    "Passed" is the verb; you want the adverb past.

    ... and adding 'her' at the end is optional.
