If you have a bad oil sending unit that is telling the computer the oil pressure is low, it will shut the engine down. Pay attention to see if it dies when the light comes on. Please note, if you hear any knocking or ticking when the light is on, shut the engine down. That indicates the pressure is low and you may have a bad pump. Also, if the check engine light comes on, have the computer scanned. Most parts stores will do it for free and it may identify a trouble code that will point you to the problem.
