One imagines that most NFL owners have professional drivers and luxury vehicles. Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis is not among them.

According to TMZ, Davis was involved in a fender-bender in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Driving a Mini-Cooper, the accident appeared to be pretty minor, per video supplied to the gossip website. Luckily, everyone is okay.

Per the report, there were no injuries stemming from the accident. It was very minor, and police were not called to the scene either.

The most notable thing about this is that Davis is driving himself around Las Vegas, no help or security for a man worth hundreds of millions of dollars and the owner of one of the most beloved sports franchises in the country. And he drives a Mini-Cooper. What a world.

As of October 2015, Mark Davis' net worth was estimated at $500 million, per a Business Insider profile of him. At the time he was driving a minivan, and frequently eating at P.F. Chang's, so he's long worked to present something of an "every man" quality, especially for a super-wealthy franchise owner.

Given the Raiders' high-profile move to Las Vegas, and their brand new home at Allegiant Stadium, Davis is probably worth even more now.

We're just glad everyone's okay, and the accident was extremely minor. There's barely a mark on that Mini-Cooper, luckily for Davis.
