Google Maps is smart enough to sift moving traffic from static traffic, on a recent trip it would tell me 'stopped vehicle on the hard shoulder ahead', so understood that the lanes were moving, but the hard shoulder was blocked. In this case I imagine it would interpret some vehicles stuck behind a slow moving obstruction while others were able to pass.
