I was in a car accident with several cars due to bad weather I was driving with no license and received ticket I had a rental and the car rental guy was just screaming at me from the start and then was threatening to call my po I was nervous and told my agent I wasn't driving but in accident I then told him today which is next day I lied and I'm telling the truth because I believe he knows the truth I've lost so much so I wanted to ask him was I going to jail because he said come in before 3pm
I'd certainly be prepared to be jailed under those circumstances, though that's the kind of thing that could likely be resolved with a short jail stint if jailed or an ATR (depending what your history with DOC compliance has been thus far). Failure to report after that and absconding would likely result in outright revocation and a much worse situation.
You have an affirmative duty to tell your agent about any contact with law enforcement, and to be truthful. Lying to your agent is never a good idea. It is a much closer call when you do not volunteer information that might get you into trouble, but that does not seem to be the case with your situation. Your agent can put you in jail while investigating the allegation(s) that you violated rules of your supervision. Your agent MAY decide to give you an Alternative To Revocation (ATR) instead of looking to revoke your supervision. However, I would suggest that you prepare for the worst and hope for the best. If you were on supervision for a drunk driving offense, and that is the reason why you do not have a valid driver's license, the chances of getting an ATR go down drastically.

Lying to your probation officer often just escalates a problem. Absconding is generally the next bad decision someone makes while on supervision, and I'd encourage you not to do this.
To answer your question, you could be going to jail.
