The girl had her phone, called for help and identified one of the kidnappers as an ex-boyfriend.
The Washington State Patrol stopped the car about two hours later on Highway 410 near Bumping Lake.
The girl was not harmed.
Police Capt. Rod Light says the teenage driver was arrested and police later arrested two other suspects who had been dropped off at Highland High School.
Light told the Yakima Herald-Republic police don't know where the driver was headed or what his intentions were but they obviously weren't good.
