Question: Do you know if?

This car has a oil pressure switch, my g/fs car had a leak i guess and the light didn't come on but her car wont stop it looks like her oil was empty but luckily she wasn't driving it, she went out in the mourning to go run to the store and it wouldn't start and she got home safe the night before, i know her oil light works it came on before
