The lighting is somewhat flat in this image. Also I feel that the reference to a dead in the picture may be somewhat cliche.

This picture feels like everything of interest has been crammed into the left half of the view.

This image implies a story, but while showing the person outside the car scratching their head does convey the intended idea, it seems like overacting. Taking the picture of the sign from the back seat with the man visible in the front seat with a crumpled up map on the dashboard would have felt more natural (well, as natural as an image of a guy consulting a map can look). I think that a more interesting story could be told if you'd have shot this from a lower angle and shown the front of the car on a jack with the person changing the tire, with airline tickets sticking out of his back pocket and the sign in the background.
