By commit, do you mean push?  I.e., something crashed while a push was
going on?

The recovery strategy depends a lot on how valuable/recoverable the work
that happened since the last backup was, but restoring from backup,
running 'git fsck' on all involved repos (including devs' workstations!)
and then having the devs re-push what they had locally seems like a good
strategy to me.
