Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentences?

I pressed the gas pedal and the car sped up. The road was empty, on both sides of it endless ripe cornfields stood motionless. I imaged being the last man on earth, driving through the countries and over the continents on the journey without the beginning or end.

What did you think were the mistakes?

I am not a teacher.

I should have written, "I imagined being the last man on earth."

But I do not know where the other mistakes are.

Fix the comma splice in this sentence: "The road was empty, on both sides of it endless ripe cornfields stood motionless."

You can do it by splitting it into two sentences with a period or a semicolon, or by changing "stood" to "standing".
