Question 2006 300C engine shuts off

Hi everyone, my mom has a 2006 300C and she recently had the oil changed. While she was idling in a drive through, she said that the oil indicator light turned on and the car immediately turned off. This happened yesterday. Me and my dad took a look at the dip stick and it appears that there is around a quart too much oil (according to my dad who is a diesel mechanic) since there is oil outside the "safe" line. Could this be the problem as to what caused the car to turn off?

Thanks,
Matt

Running with too much oil can be as bad as running with too little oil.
Have you tried draining some oil out and see if things correct themselves?
