I was in a car accident 24 hours ago. Neck wasn't hurting at that moment but now it's having pain. Could this be a form of whip lash ?

In brief: Most likely

Often muscles don't hurt post accident til first day or so.
Do follow up,with this by seeing your family doc, not a minute clinic, because you need to be examined, perhaps x rays,,and start physical,therapy to break,spasm. Anti inflammatory drugs and muscle relaxers work best
