I think the oil pressure light turning on is simply a consequence of the engine stalling -- not the cause. I don't see any reason why an engine should stall because of lack of oil pressure.
Did you have a full tank of gas?
I'm more inclined toward it being a fuel problem. I don't know how the fuel tank pickup is arranged on your truck, but the fuel is going to slosh around. At a sharp enough angle, I can imagine the fuel pump sucking in some air.
I've had my truck offroad and nothing but sky visible beyond the hood, but it's never stalled on me. Maybe you should check the fuel filter?
My lawnmower will start to splutter when it's getting low on gas, and it gets tilted at a 10-15 degree angle. That's how I know to put more gas into it. Of course, that's gravity feed, but the same idea.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
