License Plate look up

SHORT VERSION: is there any way to look up a license plate to find out the owner's name?
I got side swiped on the interstate on Wednesday, 7/31. I have dash cam video of it (thanks to Subguns gurus who talked me into one). Got the make, model and year as well as the license plate. Dude did not stop. Since it was on the interstate, local PD won't touch it. On 8/1, I drive down to State Police HQ and file an incident report- they won't let me file an accident report since it was a day later. State Police Lt. says it is a civil matter only. He didn't really have a response when I told him I was surprised that a hit and run crime only has a 20 hour statute of limitations.....
Anyway, that fat sausage then told me that he was prohibited from looking up a license plate for an incident report, and that he wouldn't take an accident report. Sent me to my insurance company because insurance companies CAN look up license plate numbers.....
For about $400 worth of damage I called and filed a claim under uninsured motorists coverage.
