If the engine didn't make any knocking or ticking when this happened, chances are the oil sending unit is bad. Check that first. If it did make noise, you will need to check oil pressure using a mechanical gauge. It just screws into where the sending unit is located. Using that, you will see exactly what the oil pressure is and if it is low or actually dropping to 0psi. If it is losing pressure, the oil pan needs removed and the oil pump should be checked. However, with only 10K on the engine, this shouldn't be the issue.
