Without a second thought, Danny jumped into the drivers seat of the old 1974 Mustang and sped away into the misty night. His troubled thoughts interrupted his concerntration and several times he veered towards the ditch beside the road. Hands trembling with fear, he knew he couldn't keep escaping the fate he'd been cursed with, but his options for survival were limited. His erratically pounding heart told him to stop running and face his destiny, but his mind commanded him to find yet another sanctuary where he could hide. Deep breaths of air drowning his lungs, he tried to steady his fragile nerves, but they resisted against his control. He had to make a life threatening decision: stop the vehicle and risk having his life taken, or remain driving until he crashed.

It is a very good style, very descriptive.

It gets a little too wordy in some places.

For example, "but they resisted against his control", could be just "but they resisted." If they are resisting, of course it is against his control.

Or "ditch beside the road" could be just "ditch." It is implied already that the ditch is beside the road.

You do show a definite way with words, though.

I would just edit out the unnecessary words and phrases.

Keep on writing!

I like it! there is one thing though... lungs cant drown with air. You could write "frantic breaths pumped his lungs" pr something... Id give you a seven from ten!
