A bus full of protestors was hit with police citations along the way to the capitol of Massachusetts.

The group on the bus is made up of North Adams residents and hospital workers from the now shut down North Adams Regional Hospital.

They boarded the bus this morning in Berkshire County, and made a stop in Framingham at the Massachusetts Emergeny Management Agency.

That's where the protestors say police gave them a hard time.

Their plan is to still make it to the state capitol to protest the sudden closure of North Adams Regional Hospital.

A bankruptcy status conference involving the hospital is set for Wednesday morning in Springfield.
