The Madison County Sheriff's Office is investigating a reported robbery at the Sheetz Gas Station early Friday morning.

Shortly before 2 a.m. today, the Sheetz located on Route 29 was robbed by a white female.

Authorities say the woman was wearing a stocking over her face and got away after demanding an undisclosed amount of money.

The clerk's husband chased after her in his car, but somehow lost her. He eventually drove up to a crash involving two vehicles. One person was trapped inside one of the burning vehicles.

It's not confirmed if one of the vehicles involved in the collision is also involved in the robbery.
