Wynonna Judd, who only recently married husband Cactus Moser in June, is now at his side in a South Dakota hospital as he undergoes painful surgeries to repair the damage done in a motorcycle accident.
The couple were both riding bikes in Deadwood, South Dakota on August 18th when Moser crossed the center line and struck a car, throwing him from the bike. One of his legs was severed at the scene, and doctors later determined they would have to amputate above the knee. He has also endured surgery on his hand. The driver of the car was not injured, and Judd was not involved.
“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” she said in a statement. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.”
Moser apparently didn’t have a license to operate a motorcycle and has been citied for it, as well as for crossing the center line. Judd, meanwhile, has cancelled upcoming tour dates so she can remain at her husband’s side. Her Twitter account hasn’t been updated since the day of the accident; the last post involves a contest for concert-goers.
The shows affected by the accident were scheduled for Canada this week; her regular tour schedule can be found here.
