Wynonna Judd's husband, Cactus Moser, will be dealing with the effects of his August 18 motorcycle crash for the rest of his life.

Judd's rep tells Us Weekly that Moser's left leg was "severed at the scene of the accident," and doctors at a Rapid City, South Dakota hospital decided they would have to amputate the limb above the musician's knee.

"He has also undergone surgery to his hand," the rep adds. "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."

Judd and Moser (real name: Michael Scott Moser) were riding separate motorcycles in Deadwood, South Dakota on Saturday when Moser, 55, collided with an oncoming vehicle.

Following her husband's horrific accident, Judd, 48, has postponed her scheduled concerts in Canada this week in order to stay with her spouse.

"The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I. Cactus is a champion," Judd told Us in a statement over the weekend. "I love him deeply and I will not leave his side."
