SELAH, Wash. -- A Yakima woman is in the hospital after police say she jumped from a moving car Thursday night to avoid a kidnapping suspect.

Officers say a man jumped into the back seat of the woman's car last night and pointed a gun at her.

She then apparently jumped out of it while it was moving.

Witnesses say the car went into a ditch, and the suspect ran from the scene. Police did not disclose where it happened.

Police have identified a person of interest, but there's no word if any arrests have been made.
