Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.
Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.

This is a tough question since either will give you that same signal.
I would suggest that you verify that the oil is not anywhere near low, or overfull. If the oil is at the correct level & at the full mark, you would have to suspect the sending unit.
Also, just as a check, you should make sure that the connection at the oil sending unit is in good condition. It should be on the filter mount. Clean, lightly lubricate with vaseline, di-electric grease, or just grease to seal & protect. this is in an area that picks up debris easily & even ice could work inbetween this connector.
Not knowing the history of your Impala, it would be hard to consider anything else. If you have had regular oil changes & used the same oil & type filter, that would make my investigation lean even more towards the Oil sending unit.
I've seen cars "flash" the oil light due to heavy braking on many occasions, but usually the oil is a little low.
If it was just once and your oil level is good, no noises, just keep your ear on the engine & eye on the light & Drive On.
Hope this helps.

I am assuming that the last people to change the oil were probably not the dealer?! If this is true, replace the filter with a AC Delco filter. There IS a difference in filters, pressures and design. If the level is good (?), this should really take care of the issue. Many manufacturers have addressed this issue in dealer TSBs and recognized that the aftermarket quick lube places have failed in quality as well as many aftermarket filter manufacturers.
