Country star Wynonna Judd's rocker husband has had his left leg amputated after sustaining serious injuries in a weekend motorcycle accident.

Michael Moser, aka Cactus, was travelling on a highway near Hill City, South Dakota on Saturday afternoon when he allegedly veered across the centre of the road and collided with an oncoming car.

He was airlifted to hospital via helicopter, but doctors found his leg had been "severed" in the crash and they were forced to amputate it above the knee.

Moser, the drummer in Judd's band, also had to undergo surgery on his hand, according to TMZ.com.

A representative for the singer says, "(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, who wed Moser in June, cancelled a planned concert in South Dakota on Saturday night as a result of the crash, while she has also postponed a series of gigs in Canada this week to remain by her husband's side.
