E-Brake Dash Light Stuck On. Need Opinions! =)

Hi Y'all,
So, I unfortunately rear ended a small car yesterday doing only about maybe 5 miles an hour. No damage to the YJ whatsoever. But, after I restarted the Jeep I noticed that the e-brake dash light wouldn't go off. I made sure the e-brake was off and I tried restarting it a couple time but it still stays on.

Do you think maybe the abrupt stop caused a simple malfuction? Or do you think the e-brake actually is stuck on? My e-brake doesn't work for crap anyway so I wouldnt even be able to tell the difference. I'm thinking maybe if I unattach and reattach the battery it may fix the problem. Any ideas? You guys seem to know a lot, if not everything, so I'm hoping you can help!! Thanks in advance =)

Yours Truly,

check all your e brake lines under the frame to your rear brakes and also check all break lines see if ones not leaking this could cause the brake light to come on

the light should be operated by a switch under dash, operated by the ebrake. simple button switch.
