Of course it will be appealed, but if the article is accurate, the sentence is almost exactly consistent with guidelines, so I'd surprised if it were reduced significantly. Of course you never know.
W can't draw any conclusions regarding the accident (unless there's more info elsewhere), but very often hit and runs like this involve alcohol, and the driver has to hide out until his blood clears. My guess is that there was indirect evidence to support a DWI charge, and the plea was acceptd in lieu of pursuing that, with both sides preferring not to gamble on a trial.
