The accident occurred near Queen Street West and McMurchy Avenue at around 8:30 p.m.
Investigators said an ambulance and another vehicle were involved with the accident.
“The ambulance was really waiting at the intersection on Queen Street West at a stop, waiting to make a left-hand turn when a vehicle struck them and push them back a fair bit,” Const. Danny Marttini said. “They were not on the way to a call, they were just in transit, stopped, waiting at the light and that’s from our initial investigation.”
The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle included were pronounced dead at the scene, officers said.
According to police, two paramedics suffered minor injuries in the accident.
Roads have been blocked off in the area as an investigation is conducted.
