Washington: Country musician Wynonna Judd’s husband Michael Scott ‘Cactus’ Moser’s leg has been amputated, after he was involved in a serious motorcycle accident that occurred over the weekend.

During the accident – when the 55-year-old singer collided with an oncoming vehicle – his left leg was “severed at the scene.”

The 48-year-old singer’s representative said that Moser was then transported to a hospital in Rapid City, South Dakota, where doctors were forced to amputate above the knee, People magazine reported.

Doctors also performed surgery on one of his hands, the representative added.

“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” Judd said in a statement.
Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side, she said.

Judd, and Moser had gotten married in June during a ceremony at the singer’s home in Tennessee.
