There have been 11 accidents involving Google's self-driving cars over a six-year period. 

Google's self-driving program director Chris Urmson says all 11 accidents were minor, with no injuries.

He posted the numbers on a blog Monday, after an Associated Press report said self-driving vehicles had been involved in four crashes in California since September, including three Google-operated vehicles. 

Urmson added that some of the crashes occurred when a worker was behind the wheel. 

The self-driving cars are being testing primarily in California and Nevada.
