I like this better on my second go round. Perhaps cropping it more from the bottom and getting rid of the white edges on the bottom and left hand side would enhance this a bit more.

I think I would have liked ot have seen a little bit more clarity in the image, however I have to say that it does capture the fear well.

It's a truck driving behind you. I don't really get a sense of fear from this image.

- Composition: This is poor. The negative space (black bits above and below the subject) do not add to the image. It would have been wise to crop them out.
- Focus: Nothing is directly in focus. you need to you your focal point to draw your audience in and direct their attention.
- Rotate: The image would benefit from a slight (maybe 1 degree) rotation to the left.
- Colour/contract: The colours are flat. This is to be expected - it is extremely difficult to photograph from a moving car in the rain. Still, you could have used levels or curves in photoshop to bring the bright colours of the truck out more.

Awesome concept ... I felt the only problem seems to be the rain and that adds to what you have done.
