The first of two surveillance videos obtained by CTV News Toronto shows part of the collision, as the minivan collides with something in the intersection and takes out a hydro pole.

In another video, the minivan crashes into a parked car and spins around. Ten seconds later, the vehicle comes to a stop, and two people appear to flee the scene on foot.

A man named Nelson, who captured the second video, says he was woken up by the sounds of the crash, and went out to investigate.

“It seems unreal, mind-blowing, scary,” he said.

Shortly after the collision, surveillance video shows two paramedics walking separately toward the minivan.

The ambulance was not carrying any patients at the time of the crash.

Police said two paramedics sustained minor injuries and are being assessed in hospital but are expected to be released.

Investigators have not released a description of the suspects that fled the scene.

Crews have been called in to repair the damaged hydro pole.
