It is understood Nat was drinking in his local pub before the collision, which happened shortly after midnight.
The car’s windscreen is said to have been smashed in the incident and the roof was dented, with the vehicle allegedly continuing on for 100 yards before stopping.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ellie and West Yorkshire Police for further comment.
Nat recently moved in with Ellie, and briefly appeared alongside her on the show during the first months of the Covid lockdown.

Ellie and Nat bought their first home together last year, a 1930s semi-detached house in Leeds.
She wrote on Instagram at the time: ‘We’re so lucky the current owners have kept it in immaculate condition so we can move straight in and just do things as we go along!’
‘I’m so excited that I’ve more or less kitted the living room out already as that’s gonna be the first room on the list.’

‘Nat has banned me from looking on Facebook Marketplace, but can’t wait to get in and start making this house our home,’ she quipped.
Sharing a second photo hours later, Ellie showed off the property’s back garden, thanking fans for their overwhelming response.
