He was thought to have covered up the car in his garage and ‘did things to alter’ them being able to locate it.

Polevich later turned himself in over the accident and pleaded guilty to two felony charges, leaving the scene of an auto accident with a fatality and tampering with evidence.

The driver was facing a possible term of seven years behind bars, but TMZ has now reported that he was sentenced to one year in jail on Wednesday.

His license will also be suspended for six months, and he has been handed a N2.1 million fine.
