Famous Singer’s Husband Loses Leg in Black Hills Motorcycle Crash


Posted on Sep 14, 2012

Singer Wynonna Judd, 48 years old, and her husband, Michael Scott “Cactus” Moser, 55 years old, were riding their motorcycles through the Black Hills in South Dakota on Saturday, August 18, when Moser was hit by an oncoming motor vehicle. According to reports, both Judd, of Leipers Fork, Tennessee, and Moser, of Nashville, Tennessee, were riding on separate motorcycles on Highway 16 when Moser crossed the center-line and was hit by an oncoming motor vehicle. Judd was riding ahead of him and was not impacted by this unfortunate accident.

Moser, who is the drummer in Judd’s band, severed his leg at the scene of the accident. He was airlifted to the Rapid City Regional Hospital where doctors amputated the leg above the knee. Of additional concern was an injury to Moser’s hand. He also underwent surgery to repair damage to the hand.

Moser was cited in this motor vehicle collision for crossing the center-line and not having a motorcycle license. He is continuing to recuperate from his serious motorcycle crash.

The accident occurred before a concert that was scheduled for Saturday night in Deadwood, South Dakota. Judd canceled the show that evening. She also has postponed her upcoming concerts scheduled for Canada. Judd indicated that she appreciates the love and support of family, friends, and fans, and that she will not leave Moser’s side while he recovers.

The South Dakota accident attorneys at Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, extend our thoughts for a quick and full recovery to Michael Scott “Cactus” Moser.
