Wynonna Judd's Husband

Leg Amputated

After Motorcycle Crash

EXCLUSIVE

Wynonna Judd's husband had his left leg amputated following a horrific motorcyle crash in South Dakota this weekend ... TMZ has learned.  

Judd's rep tells us ... Michael Scott Moser "severed" his leg in the crash ... and when he was transported to a hospital in Rapid City, SD doctors determined it was necessary to amputate the leg above the knee.

The rep also says Moser had to undergo surgery on his hand, which is of particular concern because he is the drummer in Judd's band.

Judd's rep tells us, "Judd and Moser appreciate all of the quick medical and police responders as well as the hospital staff and well-wishes from family, friends and fans."

That's rough but thank God he is alive. He can learn to use a prosthesis and with physical therapy he can be back to work. It's not easy but it can be done. Good Luck Dude.

I like how TMZ and the AP completely left out the fact that he didnt even have a motorcycle license. and was cited for it. and like 3 other things.

OMG! I am so sorry to hear this. I wonder if he was wearing a helmet...If he was, then that may have saved his life. If he wasn't, well, I would call him a very lucky guy.
There definitely is life after losing a limb. And a good quality of life too.
I was thinking of Aviva from The Real Housewives of NYC...She has a prosthetic leg and honestly, you'd never think it. She does everything now, that she did before losing her leg.
So, Cactus, good luck buddy. One day at a time eh...Blessings to you and your family as you all try to cope with this...

First off, this fat ass can sign? Whoa, back up. All I see is Ronald McDonald clown hair of her. I can't believe this guy can even get out of bed in the morning after this tub of goo rolls over on him.

God bless him. Depends on how determined he is to go on with his drumming career. Ludwig made a special drum set for Def Leppard's drummer perhaps they can do the same for Catcus. All things are possible. Sending get well wishes to Catcus. Love to Wy.

So sorry to hear this sad news. It seemed that Wynonna had finally found happiness, now she must face this sadness. Both of you be strong.

So sorry this happened! For all of you that are down on motorcycles.....the guy had no motorcycle riding experience! We all know that life is fragile and if you fall in the shower and hit your head the right way you can die....so now I'm not going to get in the shower ever again? NOT! Live your life but be smart about it and reduce your risk whenever possible! As a novice... a motorcycle safety class, some hands on training and a 2500cc might have prevented this unfortunate accident from ever happening. Sending you both well wishes and a speedy recovery.

That is really too bad, but he will recover and can have an artificial leg to continue his career as a drummer. Anything can happen to anyone at any time. We should all count our blessings.

I know Wy from church and from working with her ex-husband. She is a woman strong of faith..I know this is going to be hard on them both but that's the risk u take riding motorcycle's. My prayer's are with them and esp Cactus. Rough huh,,married 2 months and tragedy strike. I guess this will be a true test to their love and faith
