KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - Officials say an 86-year-old Washington woman escaped from a car trunk in Oregon after she was reportedly abducted by teenagers.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://goo.gl/57V2T8 ) Hazel Abel was taken from her home in Kennewick on Monday, forced into the trunk of her car and driven to Multnomah County in Oregon.

Officials with the Benton County Sheriff’s Office say Abel popped the trunk and got out when the suspects stopped at a store.

Three teens ages 14, 15 and 16 have been arrested in Oregon and are being held at a jail on suspicion of kidnapping.

Authorities didn’t say if the teens knew the woman.

Abel was checked by doctors before returning home to Kennewick.
