Is it true that the police knew who was driving the vehicle and onlly gave the the discription of "blue" because gthey were hoping the guy would come foroward on his own?

Ref: PA Code §75-3743
Leaving the scene of an accident where injury results is considered a 3rd degree felony, carrying a mandatory minimum 90 day jail sentence and up to 7 years in prison, along with a minimum $1,000 fine.

Will the police let this guy off because they know him or will he server the 3 months in jail as per Pa law?
