Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office


One of the brothers who jumped off of a party bus on Saturday has died.

APSO says, “21-year-old Austin Jenkins has passed away due to injuries from the party bus accident.”

Austin’s 19-year-old brother, Denver Jenkins, remains in critical condition.

According to Sheriff Bobby Webre, “preliminary investigation indicates there is no sign of foul play and appears to be a tragic accident.”

The investigation into this accident remains open.


A night out ends up turning bad for two men on Saturday morning.

Those two men were brothers and according to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, “shortly before 4 a.m., deputies responded to the area of Airline Highway, south of Interstate 10, in reference to two males who were on a party bus and jumped off the back of the bus for unknown reasons.”

The two men were deemed to be in critical condition and sent to a local hospital.

The party bus had around 40 people riding to Thibodaux from a night out in Baton Rouge when the two men jumped off the bus.

The individuals involved in this incident have not been identified and no update has been given on their condition.

The investigation remains ongoing as authorities are still trying to figure why the two men jumped off the party bus.
