A kidnapping suspect — with former girlfriend and her two kids in the backseat of a stolen car — was caught in South Florida after he stopped to ask an officer for directions to Interstate 95, police said.

When Ryan Cunningham, 24, of Riviera Beach asked for directions on North Dixie Highway, the officer noticed a scared woman in the car, according to WPEC-Channel 12 in West Palm Beach. The car took off before crashing into a pole.

The woman and 1- and 4-year-old sons were seriously injured in Sunday’s crash, according to the report. Cunningham, who also was hospitalized, was charged jailed on kidnapping, child neglect causing great bodily harm and felony battery.
