We don't often hear about too many news stories coming out of Norfolk, Connecticut. Typically, the Norfolk news that trickles down Route's 7 and 8 towards us concerns Infinity Hall, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, or an accident that shuts down Rt. 44 or 272. Today, that's exactly what we've found out about, it's news of a dastardly hit and run driver, right by that intersection, that is making waves from the 'quiet corner'.
