State troopers are looking for a hit-and-run driver after a Stillwater woman died from the crash.

Ashley Taylor, 37, was riding an electric bike near Stillwater when she was hit from behind, OHP said.

Taylor’s younger twin brothers, Eddie and Chuck Sweeden, said she was biking home from the Dollar General on Washington Street after getting snacks for her teenage kids.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. on US-177, just south of Burris Road near Stillwater, OHP said.

Troopers said the driver of the truck drove away from the scene and Taylor died.

“There’s that moment where if somebody were to hit my sister and call the cops like, there’s forgiveness in that, because of the fact that they stopped and they knew what happened,” said Chuck Sweeden. “But to just keep going is just, it’s one of those almost unforgivable things.”

Troopers shared a picture from the scene and said they're looking for a late 1990s, green, Chevy Silverado.

The Sweeden brothers said Taylor was blunt and funny, always willing to joke around and also work hard.

“When people were showing up to the viewing, they were wearing flip flops, I was like go ahead, that’s what she wanted,” said Eddie Sweeden.

The 37-year-old had two teenagers, and the family created a GoFundMe to help take care of them and pay for funeral expenses. You can access the GoFundMe HERE.

“You left two kids without a mom,” said Eddie Sweeden. “At least take some responsibility for that.”

Anyone with information should call OHP at 405-425-2323 to speak with investigators.
