In brief: Generally no

Unless the accident involved severe internal organ damage resulting in the need for surgery and removal of reproductive organs, then generally a motor vehicle accident should not cause infertility.

In brief: Car accident effects

There are many ways a car accident can affect fertility, but I do not think this is a common outcome.
Two of the ways it may affect fertility are by abdominal/pelvic injury or a head injury that affects hormone regulation. These injuries tend to be pretty obvious. If you are looking at fertility assessment, be sure to tell your providers about the accident.
