The ambulance was travelling with lights and siren westbound McKenzie Avenue when it collided with the vehicle travelling northbound on Burnside Road.
While the vehicle had a green light, it should have stopped to let the ambulance pass, say Saanich Police on scene.
The incident created heavy rush hour traffic delays, though traffic fully resumed before 5 p.m. following a period of alternating one-lane traffic.
