It’s not every day you hear about blog commenters making the world a better place, so we thought we’d highlight a story that our buddies over at Jalopnik just posted.A few weeks back, the site asked its readers to help identify a piece of a car that fell off during a fatal hit-and-run in Waynesboro, PA.

Within minutes, trusty commenters responded that it was the grille of a 2000-era Ford F-150 pickup.

Well, Waynesboro police just found a vehicle matching that description, and two suspects are now in custody, Jalopnik reports.

Police said the Jalopnik commenters were “critical” to solving the crime.

Nice work!
