The Man in White

He walks down the highway. Cars swerve past, honking. His spotless white suit flaps in the wind. He shifts his grip on his brown suitcase, smiles slightly and adjusts his wide-brimmed hat. The gentleman turns, facing the oncoming traffic, and begins to grow, rapidly increasing in mass. Drivers slam on their brakes, cursing loudly as he towers above.
“Remain calm. You will be assisted momentarily. Please remain in your vehicles until my staff has a chance to help you.”
He opens the suitcase. Corpses rain down before the stopped cars. Screams erupt as the dead stand and begin shambling forward.

This was my first attempt at a "Drabble" type story- one of exactly 100 words. Thoughts?
