"When you're in a coma for 8-10 days, you're basically knocking on the door," Morgan said. "I dont know if I was in a coma or in and out of a coma, but I was talking to my dad. He had this green thing on, and I just remember him saying, 'I'm not ready for you son.'"

The traumatic June 2014 car accident in New Jersey resulted in the death of fellow comedian James McNair and almost caused Morgan to lose his own life.

"I just started crying so hard," he continued. "I was crying hard -- probably harder than I cried during the funeral -- and I just kept saying, 'Dad!' 'cause he was my best friend in life."

OWN will air the entire interview on Sunday, April 3.
